We are proud to announce that we have collaborated with the brilliant Made.com for our first ever homeware range. Its theme is 'The Insect Circus' and it features a playful troupe of characters such as Martin the Magician, Lara the Ladybird Clown, Patrick the Plate Spinner, Jackie and Bob the Beetle Jugglers on bedding, rug and wall art.
Illustrated by Chi He, this range is our first foray outside of the publishing world, which makes it DOUBLY exciting! We couldn't have found a better home to let our imagination run wild, as the team at Made.com encouraged us to stay true to our ethos of creativity for kids, beautiful illustrations and silly fun!
We hope they will jazz up many bedrooms and thank you in advance for your support.
We tell the story of Minas, the Little Moon and we welcome back our lovely couple Mr & Mrs Twig who, this time, get all spruced up for the Woodlands Carnival. The Round Bunny is back too with a strange encounter on a beach!
You can get your own copy here, where UK shipping is now FREE on single copies until the end of the year. Enjoy and thanking you for your support!

Volume 44 (44!!) of Anorak is now ready to purchase from our beloved stockists or from our online shop. It celebrates OUR WORLD, the beautiful planet we live in and share with so many amazing creatures. Part geography lesson, part history lesson, this issue is sure to inspire and awe our little readers about the wonders of OUR WORLD.
We also welcome a few new characters such as Dr Notverywell who collects terrible childhood diseases such as Stickyourtongueitis and Suckthumbitis and a fun duo called The Time Travellers. We tell the story of The Girl in the Tower who, while on a trip around the countryside, gets stuck in an old castle tower and we chuckle at the news in a new broadsheet called Silly World News.
We learn how to make a telescope, thanks to our Queen of Make Julia Staite and have fun playing games such as Guess the Flag.
Not bad for one issue, huh?! Oh and last but not least, all UK shipping is now FREE until the end of the year. Lucky lucky readers.
We thank you for your support and hope you enjoy reading this issue as much as we enjoyed making it.
