Do you remember being little and loving the delicious possibility of scaring yourself silly with ghost stories? We do. Did you love all those scary movies with oh-so-terrifying themes like birds that threatened whole communities? or aliens that had to be overcome? Or maybe you're a fan of the good old-fashioned fairy tale with all the blood and gore of wolves threatening little girls who only want to visit their grandmothers? Well, we've found something you might just like. There's a new online literary magazine (FREE!) for kids from 9 to 99. It's called Underneath the Juniper Tree. (Have you read the Grimm's fairy tale The Juniper Tree? Holey Smokes! We only read that one recently. It's fairly strong stuff for little minds. Just sayin'.)
We're pretty light-hearted here in the Kingdom but there's some dark stuff lurking beneath the surface. Cheryl is keen to mine that vein of darkness. It should be interesting to see what comes up. Are you brave enough to want to see?
The July issue of Underneath the Juniper Tree is available now. Our drawing is on page 51. Check it out ... if you dare!
