Do you love the idea of writing for a magazine and entering creative competitions. scoop is for children who will be thrilled to receive their very own magazine in the post and see their published work. emma rouillard aged 10 won our scooper-duper short story competition (issue 6), we just love it, have a read and let us know what you think. illustration by the talented @lesley_barnes

felicity keem’s aunt had gone missing three days before felicity got her cat. the cat, floffles, had been left on their doorstep with a note saying, ‘please look after this cat.’ ever since they had adopted her, floffles had been doing strange things. like dabbing her eyes at felicity’s mum’s and aunt’s favourite soap opera and wagging her paw when her brother burped at the table. one day felicity went downstairs to breakfast to find her cat packing her lunch box with all the things her aunt would have packed. this routine continued for weeks. although felicity grew used to it, that didn’t make it any less weird. felicity was sitting on her bed with floffles curled in a ball at her feet. her yes-and-no rubber was perched in her hand. ‘is floffles my aunt?’ felicity joked as she flipped the rubber. it landed on yes. turning curiously towards her cat she asked, ‘is this true?’
✏️
in reply the cat nodded vigorously, clapped her paws together and crossed them over her shoulders. it was felicity and her aunt’s sign. the rubber was definitely right! floffles (aunt ivy) leapt off the bed and onto the desk, where she found felicity’s notebook. she scrawled the words, ‘can you help me?’ felicity chuckled and said, ‘actually i rather like you as a cat.’ floffles huffed and scowled at felicity. thereafter floffles was never called aunt ivy again. she was not happy about that!

...even peppa, who never seems to stay in her clothes for very long. this is apparently a classic, which was recommended on the fantastic fb group your kids next read, and is an awkward-minimising approach to discussing privacy and b****y autonomy with small people #kidlit #picturebooklove #kidsbookstagram #raisingareader #bookreview #kidsbooks #parenting #storytime

@kitabein_bolti_hain is doing such fun activities with the kids at their library. through #beyondthebook, they created these very cool 'stretchy' characters inspired by the book. see the before and after pictures by sliding left.

Today’s #packedlunchpostit features anne shirley (of green gables fame). she is one of poppy’s favourite fictional characters ever and a great role model for anybody. only 39 more post-its until the summer hols...
