Creatures are weird. In Issue 11: Creatures you’ll find a parade of real, imaginary, and ugly animals, including zooplankton—the tiniest creatures. You’ll meet wildlife specialists and medieval-era pets. Trace your pencil along the 3-D Monstermaze and create textured creature rubbings with us. Meet Dog-Chef, who will help you whip up a snack station for your bird pals. Plus, find short stories and poetry by young writers (as part of Illustoria’s partnership with the International Alliance of Youth Writing Centers) throughout this issue. Enjoy these beastly and beautiful creatures and then try drawing or writing about your own creatures!
