~ My opinion ~
This i think has to be one of the best magazines out there.
I like it because of all the competitions in this weeks issue there Are 15 different competitions.
The price of the magazine is only 76p , where if i was to go and buy a magazine just for crosswords and competitions it is much more.
What you get paid as well for sending in stories etc is a good price i think .
I don,t think this magazine is aimed at one particular age range as its suitable for all .
The stories and competitions change every week .
So go on what you waiting for, go and take a break .
Thanks for reading x
Summary: One of the best magazines available !
