Summer 2009 issue – out 16 November!

Issue 5 cover, Alphabet SoupIssue 5 will be arriving in your letterboxes from 16 November. We love the bright and summery cover – it was designed by Kate Larson, winner of our design-a-cover competition!

We received many many excellent entries and choosing a winner was very difficult. We thought Kate’s cover was eye-catching, we loved the kids on the beach, and the design left room for the Alphabet Soup logo and a few words about what’s inside the issue. Congratulations Kate!

So, what will you find inside the upcoming issue?

  • Q&A with Christine Harris, author of the Audrey of the Outback series.
  • Meet an astronomer, Peter Birch.
  • Stories, poems and book reviews.
  • Crossword.
  • Kids’ writing.
  • Summer writing competition (win a $20 book voucher!)
