Kookie (as in smart cookie) is an award-winning, girl-powered print magazine for ages 7 to 12+.

In a world that often says there’s only one way to be a girl (think pink), Kookie provides a genuine alternative – one that offers girls a rounded and optimistic sense of who they are and what they could become. There are interviews with remarkable women and girls from around the world, profiles of pioneering women in history, original fiction and comics, plus lively features on everything from adventure and activism to science and sleepovers, as well as craft, debate, pets, puzzles, problems, posters and more. Kookie is surprising, informative, inclusive and most of all … fun!

Our 56-page magazine is 100% ad-free and comes out quarterly in March, June, September and December.

Kookie was named Consumer Publication of the Year (Small Publisher) at the 2019 Mumbrella Publish Awards and Launch of the Year at the 2018 British Society of Magazine Editors Awards.

Here’s more about Kookie in the media and from our readers:

‘Kookie is the best thing to happen for tweens in forever.’

‘Thank you so much for putting together a great magazine. I am so happy that my eight-year-old daughter gets to read something that is contemporary, relevant, interesting, well designed and matches some of the core values often ignored and overlooked by other magazines aiming at the same age group.’

‘Kookie is amazing! What a beautiful, fun-filled mag!’

‘Refreshingly different to most magazines for girls. A lot more actual content for starters, but it held my eight-year-old’s attention unlike other publications supposedly for her age group. It is actually interesting and topical.’

‘Our 11-year-old granddaughter LOVES the magazine … Thank you for a clean and engaging magazine.’

‘I love Kookie because it gives people new ideas. I enjoy reading it every few months when it comes. I can’t choose my favourite segment because the magazine as a whole is just amazing! My mum found Kookie on TV and got me the first issue around Christmas time and I have loved every issue ever since. Thank you for making this magazine about what you CAN be instead of what you SHOULD be.’

‘Kookie magazine is awesome because it is interesting and not about celebrities I don’t know.’

‘My daughter has absolutely ploughed through them. She has said many times over the last few days how much she loves them. The articles, opinions, comics. Absolutely thrilled – perfectly targeted. Thank you!’

‘Just wanted to let you know that my 10-year-old daughter is loving Kookie … She is keen to write to you. Pretty exciting for a girl with dyslexia who struggles to engage with reading. Thank you so much!’

‘Love, love, love this and sincerely hope it is wildly successful. So needed to inspire a whole new generation of girls!’

‘My 11-year-old LOVES it. Cover to cover in one sitting. Well done!’

‘If you have a tween-age girl in your family, then I can’t recommend Kookie magazine highly enough.’

‘It has been a major hit in our house!’

‘I really like Kookie magazine because it has comics and lots to do for fun! Thank you so much for creating such a cool magazine with a great message!’

‘It looks amazing. Well done, everyone involved.’

‘I can’t wait for the next issue, and I haven’t even finished this one!’
