Random Thing of the Issue #1:
This old milk carton used to contain the milk I used to make my chocolate milk in the afternoon of 26/07/2017! There is not much more to say about it. The milk was nice.
Good Children’s Authors
Good authors are hard to find. It would be impossible to read every book in the library (let alone in the whole world) to find the best, so I’ve made a list of my favorite authors.
- Jacqueline Wilson is a wonderful author. She has written 105 books as of the day I am writing this first issue. The Hetty Feather books are my favorite, although all of them are really good. She has an official website, which you can visit Here.
- Andy Griffiths is an Australian author, who writes beautiful books. The Treehouse series is probably my favorite of them all. He has an official website, which you can visit Here.
- J.K.Rowling is the awesome author of the well known series of Harry Potter! She is one of my top 5 favorite authors! She has an official website, which you can visit Here. She also has Pottermore, which is all about Harry Potter. You can visit Pottermore Here.
- Lauren Child is the amazing author of The Charlie and Lola series, and the Ruby Redfort! Ruby Redfort has her own website, which you can visit here! Lauren Child has her own website, which you can visit here!
Shell of the issue:
This issue’s shell will be one of my favourite shells! I like to call her Wavy. And no, I have not found out whether shells are shes or hes. The shell is just colourful and pretty so I decided to call it a she (it could be a he, though, I know!). Anyway, as you can see in the photo, she, oh, alright, it, has sort of waves on it, which is why I named h- it – Wavy. As I said earlier, it is colourful – sort of orangey-pinky-redy, which is why I like to call it a her. And no, it is not for sale, even if you said you would pay millions and millions of dollars!!!!!!!! And it is going to be in Pascoe Vale Museum!!!
Gem Stone of the issue:
This beautiful Peacock Ore Gemstone is my dear gem. I bought it a couple of years ago from the Melbourne Museum. I like to call it Pecky. I’m not going to say “he” or “she”, because you will just say that rocks or shells or feathers or things don’t have names. But what if I said that the dolls that you play with don’t have names and aren’t a boy or girl? OK, lets get off the topic of dolls and boy and girl rocks and things. So anyway, isn’t it beautiful? It flashes different colours when the light hits it. So, if you want to see more of this stone in ‘The Dream Mag’, please, say so down in the comment section!! Pecky is going to be in Pascoe Vale Museum!
Random Thing of the Issue #2:
This is the pencil which my mum uses to write what we are going to do for school with. It is really special. It came in a big pack with lots of other pencils just like it. There isn’t much more to say about this pencil.
Songs of the Issue:
Ages 0-6: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star !!!
Ages 7-11: Can’t Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake !!!
Ages 12+: Despacito by Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee !!!
Feel free to comment some songs you like for me to listen to and possibly even make Song of the Issue one issue!!
Barbie of the Issue:
So, what do you think of Camila? Well, that’s what I call her. And we all know this is a girl!! I got her earlier this year (2017) from an OP shop. She is originally from 1964. Yes, 1964! She came with this puffy, curly, frizzy, wonderful brown hair, just as it is in the photo. She came with no clothes on, and has absolutely flat feet. Not even an arch. I think dolls didn’t wear shoes, or at least not high heels, back when she was made. Her flat feet have a HUGE plus side!! Well, multiple, actually. 1. If we get very poor, I can sell her for her flat feet, because she is very rare and precious, (although I REALLY don’t want to sell her EVER!!). 2. She stands on her own without leaning against something or having a support or stand! Yes, I wrote that and you read that right! I have another Barbie I call Spring (I’ll make her Barbie of the Issue soon!), who has feet with arches, but not high heel feet. You will get more info on her in one of my future issues! Please, comment if there is anything else you would like to know about Camila!
Book of the Issue:
How to Save the Universe in 10 Easy Steps is a very nice, very funny, and very out-of-this-world book by Allison Rushby! I am not completely finished with is, but it is amazing! It is about a boy, Cooper, who lives in his home on Peregrination. One day, Cooper’s sister, Molly, says that she is actually an alien sent to protect Cooper! Molly tells Cooper that he is going to one day, yes, you guessed it – SAVE THE UNIVERSE!!!!!
I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!!!
Random Thing of the Issue #3:
I found these chopsticks right next to me on the table. We got them from a shop some time ago. I use them a lot. I even eat pasta, spaghetti, ravioli and ho-ko-so with them! There is not much more to say!
Clothes Item of the Issue:
As this is a VERY important issue, I though I would put one of my very favourite pieces of clothing in here! But then again, I love all of my clothes (Past, Present and Future) the same.

Coin of the Issue:
Well, Well, Well! I don’t remember when I found this, but this claims to be an Australian penny from 1945! It has a kangaroo on the front, along with the year (1945) and the word, AUSTRALIA. I have researched these pennies, and lots of places they can sell for thousands of dollars! But I am not selling mine (yet)!

This is our T.V. remote. You probably know all about it just by looking at it. That is all there is to say about this remote.
Toy of the Issue:
This is the MOST important article in this issue. I got this doll just a few days ago from one of my friends (who is an author here on Sunshine Bubble Station!). And she isn’t just any doll, she is an INDIAN doll! You can take her bracelets off, although it is rather hard, but you cannot take off the dress. She is really pretty! Her name is Indiana. If you have any questions, please, comment below!

This is my brother’s (who is also an Author here on Sunshine Bubble Station) eraser, which he writes spelling cheats on because it is his least favourite subject at the moment. There is not much more to say about this eraser except I used it to make my best drawing (which really isn’t that good).
