Hi AQUILA! First of all I love your magazine! As soon as I come home from school I leap through the door and check if my Aquila has come, then (if it has) I rip it open, jump on the sofa and start reading it! I have been getting it for 2 years now it was a birthday present from my grandad, my favourite issues are Creative Coding (June 2021) and Manga (May 2023) but really, ALL your magazines are amazing! I would really like you to do an issue on women's football as I am football mad. I live in Manchester and I'm a big Man City fan. OK, I've waffled on long enough and my Mum is telling me to come downstairs BUT I'm going to do the Aquila tradition.

P.S. I love Red Pandas
P.P.S. *book recommendation* Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens

Hi Aquila!
My name is Molly. I am 11 years old and I live in Australia. When I was flicking through the Science of Stars (Dec 2023) mag, I saw something that caught my eye. MAKE YOUR OWN BATH BOMBS! That was the start of many. Since it is near the end of the school term (for aussies), I decide to make some for my teachers and friends. Here are some photos of my bath bombs. The one with me in it has an in the making, fail and good ones and the other one has just the good ones.

Hi my name is Nathan and I live in Western Australia. I started getting Aquila this year and it's amazing! My favourite issue so far has been the Spies and Sleuths. I really like the Science of Stars issue too because I want to study astronomy when I grow up. In Western Australia we also have the Aboriginal constellations. The Emu in the Sky constellation is made of the dark space between the stars. Emu in Noongar language is Weitj. I made the supernova cookies with my little brother, Elijah. They were fun to make, they were tasty and they looked cool.

Hi AQUILA,

I live in Devon, in South-West England. My favourite AQUILA by far was Undersea Explorers (May 2021). I know that every single person says this butÖ I donít just like AQUILAÖ I love it! For Christmas in 2022 I got some eggs for these leaf insects. What I didnít realise was how big they get! After around 7 months, they had got to 8cm which was so large. My other pets include 2 tanks full of fish, shrimps and snails, and my cat called Esme. This letter is getting long now so bye!

Dear AQUILA,
I know everyone says this, but I love your magazines. My first one was the Japan issue (June 2020). Now, my overall top three favourite issues are: Manga (May 2023), Art Show (September 2023) and Festivals and Folklore (July/August 2023) - I tried the who dunnit and yes the culprit was Winston Winkstead.

I have a few issue ideas: dancing, seals, Battle of Hastings, Vikings and Anglo-Saxons. In September, I started secondary school and some of those topics came from my history lessons.

Once again I love your magazines and I am looking forward to the next issue, so bye AQUILA!!!!

Dear Aquila,

I LOVE Aquila! My favourite bits are the Brainfeeders and the Over To You pages! And second-best to Aquila for me is crochet. I started learning in the summer of 2022 and I now have around 100 balls of wool! Crochet is done with a ball of wool and a crochet hook. I usually do amigurumi, which in Japanese means crocheted toy. In the picture I am with my biggest crochet animal, Dave the octopus. My other animals are in amongst all the wool. See if you can spot all 12!
I hope you like my crochet.

P.S. My friend Laura also reads Aquila and is a crochet fan too!
P.P.S. In the photo there is Dave, two jellyfish, one mini jellyfish, a turtle, a mini turtle, a crab, a prawn, a sardine, a duck, a frog and a bee.

My faves are the Time Traveling issue, (July/August 2022) and the Manga issue, (May 2023). A long time ago I made the Carrotpatra from the Egypt issue and my parents thought it was DISGUSTING. (Who can blame them!?) My first AQUILA was Night at The Movies (Dec 2020) but I got it on 1 Jan 2021 because my 7th birthday was ON THAT SAME DATE!! Pretty cool, am I right!? I am homeschooled with my best friend Ella, so I get to learn loads more stuff!

Dear Aquilanaughts,

Today I showed my little sister how to make the ammonite collage from the rocks and fossils edition. We had a lot of fun doing this. I hope you are all having a great summer. Every day I go to summer school and we do many fun activities. It is very hot now in Greece - we go often to the beach and my sister and I love to look for interesting rocks and shells.

Happy summer

Dear Aquila,

I love you and everyone else at Aquila HQ and all the things you do and make! You are SO awesome, youíre honestly my favourite magazine (and I can say that because I get quite a few other magazines as well. Sorry if they read this!)
Iíve been getting Aquila magazines for almost 5 years! Thatís so crazy! Obviously I love all the writing inside the magazines and activities, but also just the pictures. Where do you find the artists? Iíve got a couple of passions - I love to draw and paint, so I could be an artist, I love to write, so I could be an author, I love to act, so I could be a performer, but I also love cooking and building things and other stuff, so maybe it would be easier to be a Leonardo da Vinci of sorts.

I have three younger siblings and we are all home-schooled. I think itís really cool, and if I werenít homeschooled myself, Iíd never have known how many families there are in our area that do it - there are loads!

The monsters should not be in that room!

I don't have a favourite issue I like all of them a lot, but if I had to pick one it would be the Japan issue. Every day after school I check the mail box to see if the next issue has arrived. I really like reading the Ian bits and doing the puzzles. I like the riddles too ( when I say riddles I mean for example in the solar science issue the Escape from the ice cream van of doom) I like telling the jokes people send, I would tell you one but I get most of my jokes from you.

Hi,

We love Aquila! We also love pangolin. It was world pangolin day on Saturday the 18 of February so we decided to do something to help them. We came to the decision to do a 10km sponsored walk around our local reservoir! We handed out leaflets and held placards. Jessica even dressed up in a homemade pangolin outfit! As it was a sponsored walk we named it the Pangolin Protectors' Pitsford Plod. We even got support from a local wildlife crime police officer who came along at the start to wish us luck and support us in our efforts. We raised over 200 pounds and hopefully lots of awareness about the danger pangolins are facing. We think pangolin are amazing and unique creatures and we really wanted to help save them!!!!

Hi AQUILA! I love your magazines! It was very hard to choose my favourite issues, but Iíve decided: Pompeii (September 2022), Showstoppers (November 2022), London (July/August 2021) and Japan (June 2020). My first issue of AQUILA was Japan! I liked learning to draw Manga.

In your Showstoppers issue, you had a bit about learning lines off by heart. Well at school, I have done some summer plays and nativities. In last yearís summer play, we did Twelfth Night and I played Lady Olivia. I think I had 40 lines to learn!! I was Year 5 then when I played Olivia. Now Iím Year 6. The year before that, we did A Midsummer Nightís Dream (also a Shakespeare) and I played Helena, I think I had 20 lines, so half. I think Iím getting more lines every year!

I have sent a photo of my garlic bread I made from the Pompeii issue and a photo of my favourite crafts and my AQUILA magazines. I live in Cornwall and I swim in the sea!

I also made super neon yellow (itís so bright it appears green) and can only be used by Aquilanaughts. One of my favourite drinks is boba tea let me know if anyone else likes it!

Hi! I love your magazines. My grandpa signed me up and had these sent to me all they way to Texas! I love doing all the activities and learning new things. Thank you Aquila!
P.S I love science. Could you do an issue about how the body works?

Dear Aquila,
I made these Baked Alaskas from your Winter Wild issue and they tasted delicious. I like maths, cats, and recently I have been making a lot of paper teddies for my friends. My favourite past issue of the magazine is Autumn Adventures because it contained a lot of information about animals and hibernation. When I grow up I want to be a vet.
From Alice, age 9

P.S. Pleeease can you do an issue on cats?
P.P.S. or dogs?

P.P.P.P.P.S. Bye!

Dear Aquila, I love your magazines!! I always take them into school and read them but my English teacher ALWAYS says 'You need to read more things your age, like novels! Not magazines!' Little does he know that these magazines are so informative and entertaining that they put Charles Dickens to shame! I have SO many magazines. Whenever I get one in the post I immediately flip to the back to see what Ian has to say and then go through the brain feeders. Thank you so much for making such amazing magazines!

Yours sincerely, Ramona
