hey tgs!

Does anyone else get super competitive when it comes to playing games? Like, competitive in the friendliest way possible but deep down you really want to win? That’s me, haha. Last weekend, my family and I were having a games night. I learnt a cool new card game and we had to pair up in teams. My team didn’t win, but that’s OK, I’m going to keep practising so when the next game night comes around, I’m totes ready! It’s our Game On! issue, featuring heaps of fun ideas and games to play, including how to play cards! Maybe we can verse each other, hehe. XO Rosie and Team TG…

totally embarrassing

Ridiculous! I was playing a game with my older sister and I lost, so she got to dress me in any outfit of her choice that I had to wear on our daily walk. She made me wear my dressing gown, a floppy leopard print sun hat, and tiny pink sunglasses. I also had to carry a big colourful beach basket. My hat kept falling off, and lots of people saw me and probably thought I looked weird! It was SO embarrassing! Aurora Theatre fluff I finally secured a role in the school musical. I had one line and I was so excited! It was opening night, my whole family and friends came to watch me perform in a theatre with 1000 audience members! It was my time to shine and say my one…

clever cook

Name: Libby Age: 12 Hometown: Auckland, NZ I’ve always had a passion for cooking – I’ve spent hours in the kitchen baking desserts and cooking meals for my family. I’m also a vegetarian and an animal-lover! My family’s friends often ask for my recipes so that’s when I decided to write my own cookbook. All the recipes in this book are vegetarian, dairy-free and refined sugar-free. I believe that good food comes mostly from plants and not animals, and the recipes should be fun and easy to make. It was a long year of hard work – tasting recipes, writing, improving, and editing. On top of that, working twice a week for the last 12 months delivering newspapers to pay all the professional freelancers! I had a lot of freelancers working for me, we had…
