Kids Cover 2022

Every year we invite entries from 13 years old and under, from all across Britain, to create the Festive Special cover. It’s a big competition for a very special edition. And every year our socks are knocked off by the range and the quality and the imagination. This year, we were joined by Radio 1’s Greg James to help with the fiendish task of picking a winner.

We settled on the simple, glorious, affecting collage snowman by Fergus Rutherford-Moyler, a 10 year from Glasgow. His collage was created using old editions of the magazine. Congratulations Fergus!

Also inside

  • The Muppet Christmas Carol: It’s the 30th anniversary of a much loved classic. We speak to the director and stars
  • Kids Books of the year: We pick the best of the best, for all ages. It is an essentially gifting help!
