With each issue we bring together a host of incredible writers and illustrators who create original fiction, articles, poetry, puzzles, comics, games, activities and more. We explore everything from punk to painting, from science to poetry, from super-natural phenomena to playwriting. We aim to offer children a way into ideas and subjects through the very best story-telling, design and illustration. We are not curriculum based but educate through passion, curiousity and an utterly unique mix of styles and voices. We also love to publish work from children themselves so please do look at our Scoop Club page if your child or a child you know would like to take part.
Scoop is the best present for any child who deserves a treat. It’s for children who are passionate (or about to be passionate!) about reading, who want to know what’s going on in the world, who have a terrific sense of humour, and who love the idea of writing for a magazine and entering creative competitions.
Not least, Scoop is for children who will be thrilled to receive their very own magazine in the post, addressed only to them.
CURRENT GUEST EDITOR
Konnie Huq, one of Britain’s most loved presenters – she was Blue Peter’s longest-serving female presenter from 1997-2008 and since then has gone on to present shows including The Xtra Factor, King of the Nerds and London Talking. Her first children’s series is based on the exploits of her hero Cookie. The character of Cookie is inspired by her own London Bangladeshi background, her love of science, and her being a bit of a nerd. The first book in the series is Cookie and the Most Annoying Boy in the World.
CURRENT JUNIOR EDITOR
Matilda Sodderland, has two sisters, two step sisters, and a half-brother. Her favourite books are the Harry Potter series. We loved having Matilda as our second Junior Editor. She gave her opinion on illustrations, copy and design in the early stages.
