“Anorak is what would happen if Monty Python, Ralph Steadman and René Magritte decided to make a magazine for children.It's anarchic, fun, laugh-out-loud strange and readable for kids of all ages.”
"In everything Anorak does, the saccharine, fat and starch of the usual children's fare has been replaced by the true sweetness of homegrown organic fare. Extreme fun for the kids and a visual delight for all. YUM!"
Editorial Director, TOON Books
Art Editor, The New Yorker
About HAPPY TV: "Anorak is bright and in your face, fun and informative, and consummately creative. Perfectly aimed at what makes kid’s imaginations go wild, Anorak comes out in print four times a year."
A unique and beautifully designed magazine for kids, totally unlike anything else on the market. The illustrations are beautiful enough to please the most finickity parent, and fun enough to engage children. The recommended reading age is around five to ten but this can be interpreted pretty loosely.
“Anorak is undoubtedly the coolest kids magazine for 5 to 9 years old.”
—Vogue Kids France.
