I got SO nostalgic over yesterday’s Daily Post prompt that I pulled out my favorite magazines from when I was little.
I used to get these second hand from a girl at my primary school named Katie. Katie had very silky hair, a big flopsy dog, and a swimming pool. Pretty much the epitome of cool. And as if all of that wasn’t enough, she had a subscription to Cricket, the best literary magazine for children EVER.
These are some favorite covers from my collection. Isn’t the artwork inspiring? I’m as excited as those island children are by that hot air balloon.
So here’s my bright idea for today: I’m going to submit one of the
million twenty-something children’s stories I’ve written over the past two years to Cricket. How exciting would that be? I’d be almost as cool as Katie, I think.
Now all I need is a dog.
