Best Gifts for Nine-Year-Olds—Wirecutter

Illustoria is a print magazine for creative kids & their grownups. We celebrate visual storytelling, makers and DIY culture through stories, art, comics, interviews, crafts and activities. Our high-quality, tri-annual publication is geared toward readers ages 6-12 and the young at heart. Illustoria is the official publication of the International Alliance of Youth Writing Centers, publishing writing and art by young people alongside accomplished professionals.

Here’s what we have up our collective sleeves next:

Illustoria #14: Myth
Have you ever wanted to know more about myths, legends and folklore from around the globe? We’ve searched far and wide for tales of the unusual, featuring bugs, yetis, horse hybrids, magical dogs, & super strong babies. We’ll help you build your own labyrinth—indoors or out—using socks from your laundry pile, or rocks in the grass. Create your own edible dragon eggs with the help of Dog Chef. Read our interview with fabric sculptor Nick Cave, who is influenced by ancient mythology. Meet a New York City youth activist, go behind the scenes with cover artist Julie Benbassat, and see what other young writers and artists have been making lately.

For Issues 1-8, and to keep up on the latest news and blog-updates, visit Illustoria.com.

Get the next three issues of Illustoria AND the next four issues of McSweeney’s Quarterly for one unbeatable price with the Illustoria-McSweeney’s Combo Subscription.
