    May issue: Daredevils

    Courage: it comes in an array of different shaped packages. There is the big, brash climb-a mountain-with-a-king-cobra-wrapped-around-your-face-kind-of-courage, and then there’s a smaller, steelier, resilient kind; the kind of courage that can help you stand up for a friend, or keep going to tap dancing classes even though you’re the worst dancer in the entire universe.

    This issue of AQUILA is devoted to bravery in all its forms. Find out all about England’s last duel, meet a school of daredevil cleaner fish, make a rubber band racecar and build your own suspension bridge, and that’s just for starters.

June 2016: Roald Dahl

This year marks the great man’s centenary, so we simply couldn’t let 2016 go by without paying tribute to the genius of Roald Dahl. This issue is packed with phizz-whizzing mischief of the most gloriumptious and wondercrump variety. Learn how to speak gobblefunk; debate the topic of hunting as conservation in our regular philosophy column; find out why so many of our best-loved book characters are orphans, and make your own LICKABLE WALLPAPER! We’re VERY EXCITED. Can you tell?

Is AQUILA suitable for both boys and girls?

Absolutely – we steer clear of stereotyping as it is our intention to introduce all children to new and different ideas. Educational specialists recommend AQUILA because it widens children’s interest and understanding, rather than encouraging them to concentrate exclusively on their favourite/best subjects.

Can they receive their first magaine on a special date?

We can personalize your gift order to dispatch and arrive in time for a special occasion. For birthdays please enter the child’s birthday and a gift message when you make your order. We will note the birthday and dispatch the first magazine marked to open on the birthdate.
