Look, that's me in the Guinness World Records 2018 book!

Ed’s L etter Hi guys, Well, the Christmas countdown has officially started in my house! We put up the tree and I have given Mum, Dad (and Santa!) my official wish list... I hope they all remember how good I've been this year! We're also celebrating the holiday season in this issue of It GiRL. Our mini Christmas special starts on page 22 and includes really cute cut-out gift tags. Also this month two super-exciting things happened to me... first I got to attend the launch of the new book series, Nevermoor and I was lucky enough to meet the author of the books, Jessica Townsend. She was so cool and really friendly, it was a fun night. Oh, and if you turn to page 50 you can read a sneak peek from the first book in the series, The Trials of Morrigan Crow. I think you guys will really like it. And the second totally e h r of t end. awesome and really, really exciting thing that happened o h t s e au own this month is that I made it into the Guinness World Records ith th essica T w I am ies, J 2018 book as The World's Youngest Magazine Editor.

Hello to everyone at It GiRL mag, I just want to say a big thank you for your awesome mag.

How embarrassing! Check out this month’s totally OMG moments…

MISS DAYDREAMER

I was in class and I was bored so I started dreaming about Justin Bieber. I was totally in my own world so I didn’t hear my teacher calling my name. When he said, “I’m sorry, Larissa, am I keeping you from something more important than my lesson?”, I snapped to attention and said, “No, sorry Mr Bieber.” The whole class burst out laughing and I ended up getting into trouble for not paying attention. To make matters worse, some of the boys in my class now call me Mrs. Bieber. It was all so embarrassing.

LARISSA, 12, QLD

SWINGING SISTER I was at the park with my BFF and we were on the swings seeing who could swing the highest. I was swinging up really high when I saw a big dog come into the park. I’m really scared of dogs so I stopped concentrating on what I was doing and ended up flying off the swing. I hurt myself pretty bad and was really embarrassed, but I was too worried about the dog to care!

GEORGIA, 10, VIC 12 FACEBOOK.COM/ITGIRLMAG 06

I was up the coast with my family when my cousin, my brother and I decided to go exploring. We found an old abandoned house, but we couldn’t get close to it because it had a huge locked gate. My brother was convinced that I was small enough to fit through the bars so he made me try and I ended up getting my head stuck! My cousin had to go and get help and my parents ended up calling the fire department to come and get me out. I was crying my eyes out and was so embarrassed. My brother even took photos!

HEAD DILEMMA


!

NOISY GUEST I was sleeping over my friend’s house and I really needed to go to the toilet. I went downstairs to use the toilet down there as no one really uses that one in her house. I was in the middle of doing my business when I accidentally let out a really big fart. I was so shocked to hear someone laughing on the other side of the door and was too embarrassed to go back upstairs afterwards. When I eventually when back up, my friend told me her little brother heard me and told everyone!

CHARLOTTE, 11, VIC

SICK STUDENT We were on a bus on a school excursion and we were driving up a winding road. I started to feel a bit sick, but just closed my eyes and hoped the feeling would go away. But all of a sudden I vomited all over the floor and on the shoes of my friend sitting next to me. The bus had to stop so everyone could get off while the teachers cleaned up my vomit. It was so embarrassing and I felt really bad.

MIKAYLA, 9, WA

WRONG GOAL

CELEB WHOA! MOMENT “I was out to dinner at a sushi restaurant and I went to take a bite out of my sushi only to realise I couldn’t fit the whole roll in my mouth. I was trying to bite it in half but the seaweed would not rip! So I’m trying to carry on a conversation with my friend and this sushi is just unrolling and make a complete mess!”

ASHLEY BENSON

I was playing soccer with some of my classmates at lunchtime and when the ball was passed to me, I went to kick it to someone on my team but the ball curved around and went into the other team’s goal post! The people on the other team cheered, but my team weren’t very happy with me. Oops! The game ended up being a draw which made me feel even worse.

All About Me

I LIVE NEAR THE BEACH and I love it. I like to go down to the beach and hang out about four or five times a week. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I REALLY ENJOY SCHOOL. My favourite thing at school is seeing my friends and when we do art. I would say my least favourite thing is homework. MY BEST FRIENDS ARE Zoey, Madeson and Stella. We’ve been friends since year one. Our favourite things to do together is go to the beach, have sleepovers and visit each other’s houses. I DO GYMNASTICS. When I was little mum put me into dance classes and I didn’t like it. So she put me into gymnastics instead and I love it a lot. WHEN I AM OLDER I HOPE TO BECOME A MARINE BIOLOGIST. I love all animals but sea animals are my favourite. Especially whales and seahorses. I COLLECT SHELLS. I have a really big collection already. Living near the beach is handy for this.

Practising my handstands at my favourite place in the worold.

I HAVE A BIG SISTER WHO IS EIGHT YEARS OLDER. My parents had her when they were young and then came me and brother. It’s cool because she does fun things with me like takes me to concerts!

Y T I R B E L CE gossip

All the latest news on today’s biggest stars.

ZENDAYA TAKES A CHANCE

Zendaya recalls a time when she did something daring at an audition. “It was one of my first jobs and all these kids could do crazy things,” remembers the star. “They could do flips or spins or something cool, right? And I just couldn’t. I was a normal dancer. I had charisma, but I could only dance.” But Zendaya wanted to stand out so she decided to do a front flip! “Never did one before in my life, other than inside my living room playing around. Thank God I landed it! It could have been terrible.” But it worked and Zendaya got the part. Woo!

JENNA ORTEGA LOVES FAMILY TIME Despite being a famous celeb, Stuck In The Middle star, Jenna Ortega loves nothing more than spending time with her family and friends. “I love that I can go home to Coachella Valley and see my family and friends who have been with me from day one,” the Disney Channel star shared. “It’s nice to have them by my side always.” Her family definitely doesn’t give her any special treatment either! “I get home from the set and they do not forget to tell me that there are dishes in the sink waiting for me. They keep my feet on the ground.”

ANTHONY’S SPECIAL CHRISTMAS GIFT

Anthony Gonzalez is the 12-year-old actor who voices Miguel in the new Disney movie, Coco. The star recently revealed how he found out he got the part. “I auditioned, and it was a long process about a year,” he remembers. “Eventually, I went to the Pixar headquarters to do test voices. Then last Christmas, they said they had a present for me and brought me this box. I opened it and there was this beautiful piece of artwork that just said, ‘You got the part’. I was so shocked, I just fell to the floor. I couldn’t believe it.” Aw, that’s so cool!

CHLOE’S DREAM SLUMBER ROOM

If there’s one thing that Chloe Lukasiak loves just as much as dancing, it’s sleepovers. In fact, the dancer even has a whole room dedicated to slumber parties! “When we moved into our new house a few years ago, my sister and I each got a room in the basement to do whatever we wanted with,” Chloe explained. “I decided that a sleepover room would be awesome.” The room has four bunks, coloured flashing lights and is decorated with photos and gifts fans have given Chloe.

CAMILA’S FEAR OF DANCING

It’s hard to believe that singer, Camila Cabello used to be scared to dance in public but it’s true! “To be honest, I never used to dance when I was little,” confessed the star. “I was super shy.” Camila adds, “I would cry at all the holiday parties when people started dancing, but music has pulled it out of me. My grandma, who is really proud, thought I was a lost cause as far as dancing goes.” Wow, we’re so impressed that Camila was able to beat her fear and become the star she is today!

MADDIE’S BOOK PLANS

First she wrote her memoir, The Maddie Diaries, then she wrote her first fiction book, The Audition, and now Maddie Ziegler has ideas up her sleeve for more fiction books! “There are plenty of books that I now see myself writing in the future, and there are plenty of ideas for that, but for the first ones, it had to be about dance,” she shared. “Dance is my life.”

JACOB’S GONNA STAY REAL Jacob Sartorius talks about the pressures of being a young star. “It’s crazy. You throw a normal kid into the spotlight and expect them to be perfect,” he said. “Everyone’s human so I’m gonna make mistakes... I don’t think people can be perfect, but I’m just gonna try to be myself and stay humble.”

DOVE’S PLANS FOR THE FUTURE When asked where she sees herself in 10 years, Dove Cameron revealed she has no plan. “I try not to plan anything,” said Dove. “I don’t even think about what’s coming out of my mouth most of the time.” But she has a good reason for living her life day by day. “Everything that I’ve found myself in, has always been something that I couldn’t have planned and there’s so much beauty in that.”


Loving L We were so excited to catch up with Lizzy Greene from Dawn. The star chatted to us about acting, Christmas, Hi Lizzy, how did you get into acting?

Canada was incredible. Riele Downs and I did not know each other well, but when we wrapped the movie we were best of friends! My character, Barkley, was super outgoing and crazy, and I can’t wait for the world to meet her.”

“I was in a local theatre company in my city where it was extremely disciplined. At one performance, a casting agent saw me and asked me to audition for Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn. Auditioning lasted for six to eight weeks including seven live auditions.”

What do you hope to find under the Christmas Tree this year?

What is going on right now with Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn?

“A little bit of everything! New make up and skin care items, such as clay face masks and lipsticks. Clothes, Adidas Yeezy’s maybe, a certain throw from Anthropologie, and a silver bracelet.”

“Season four is airing early 2018 in Australia and my character, Dawn ventures into singing!”

What are your future goals with acting? Follow Lizzy on Instagram at @lizzy_greene

“I’d love to venture into movies with a more mature story, such as drama or thrillers. I would also be open to doing more comedy.”

“Baking! Fun with family, seeing my cousins, music, and shopping.”

How do you manage to juggle work with your schooling? It must be tough! “Tutors on set keep us on track. When I’m home, I tutor with my Aunt Shay and we try to get as far ahead as possible so I’m not always playing catch up and studying lines at the same time.”

LOVING... Soni Bringas

PassionFORDance

Born in Portland, Oregon, USA, Soni loved to dance as a young girl but not at first. “I started dancing when I was five years old. My mum put me in dance classes and I did ballet and tap and I hated it,” she recalls. Soni wanted to stop the lessons but her mum made her finish off the year. “Strangely enough over the next few months I started enjoying it and I’ve been dancing ever since.” Through her passion for dance, Soni started landing television commercials and gigs, and by the time she was a teenager she was also taking part in competitive dance challenges. “I would say hip hop is my favourite style of dance. It is the style I dance most often and the one I feel more comfortable dancing.”

TheACTINGBug

It wasn’t long before Soni made the transition from dance to acting. “I started acting at age ten when I moved to LA,” she explains. “My favourite thing about acting is being able to take on different characters and imagining the situation that your character is in. I just think it’s really cool.” In 2016 Soni scored her first major acting role when she was cast on the Netflix series, Fuller House.

BeingRAMONA

On Fuller House Soni plays Ramona Gibbler. “Ramona and I have the same dance aspect,” says the star. “After I told the casting directors I was a dancer, the writers added that to my character.” Soni and Ramona also share other similarities. “We’re both normal teenagers and very close to our family,” Soni says. “We love being on our phones and social media.” As for what’s different about them, Soni says there isn’t much. “She’s very much an extrovert. I think I like to be more of an introvert and just have my alone time.” 20 FACEBOOK.COM/ITGIRLMAG

There’s a quirky Norwegian tradition at Christmas time, where groups of people wander through the streets on December 25th wearing costumes and singing songs for people in exchange for festive foods and treats. This is called Julbukk, which translates to “Christmas Goat.” Why a goat? The groups usually take a goat along with them, or someone who does a funny impression of one. Sometimes, when two people who are pretending to be goats meet, they have a play fight which is super funny to watch.

Christmas traditions you probably didn’t know about!

CHRISTMAS DAY IS CELEBRATED IN SOME WEIRD, WACKY AND AWESOME WAYS AROUND THE WORLD. WHILE SANTA MAKES HIS WAY AROUND THE GLOBE DELIVERING PRESENTS, THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER INTERESTING THINGS FAMILIES DO TO CELEBRATE THIS SPECIAL TIME OF YEAR. READ ON TO LEARN SOME COOL NEW CHRISTMAS FACTS!

peru

The Peruvian people enjoy a feast on December 24th, which is also known as La Noche Buena (which is translated to “the Good Night”). Families usually attend a church service, and then go home to eat a big meal, open presents and celebrate until midnight. In Peru, people don’t put gifts around the Christmas tree. Instead they display their presents around a manger, and it’s considered lucky if you’re the person who gets to place the statue of Baby Jesus into the manger.

South Africa:

We think that the award for the craziest Christmas food has to go to the South Africans, who feast on deep-fried caterpillars of Emperor Moths at Christmas time! The creepy crawlies are considered a yummy delicacy during the month of December. Like us, South Africans celebrate their Christmas Day in the summer time, so there's lots of outdoor activities to enjoy.

Japan

It’s not an overly religious holiday in Japan, but the Japanese people still do celebrate Christmas. Schools are closed on Christmas Day, but a lot of businesses still stay open. Usually on December 25th people are on holidays because there’s a school holidays break, and many people see Christmas as a romantic day, kind of like Valentine’s Day. You might think the Japanese people would enjoy sushi or seafood or noodles to celebrate but guess what? One of the most popular foods on this day is KFC fried chicken!

BOLIVIA

Bolivians celebrate the Christmas festival from the 24th of December, right until the 6th of January. On Christmas Eve, families celebrate what is known as Misa del Gallo, which means “Mass of the Rooster”. They go to church at midnight and take live roosters along to mass with them, as they believe a rooster was the first animal to announce that Baby Jesus was born. How cool is that? At midnight, people also like to let off fireworks to kick off the celebrations with a bang.

MOVIE, ALL-NEW T, IN THE C E P X E YOU’D ING LIKE O IS NOTH H W T N IA TLE G ITH A GEN IN LOVE W L L A F O T Y THE HEDGEHOGS GET READ – UNA, DOS AND CUATRO These three are cunning, quick and stick together. Literally. Like Velcro. They are a nuisance to everyone at Casa de Campeones and are considered thieves (which… they kind of are.) They find a friend in Ferdinand and agree to help him escape if they can go with him back home to the farm.

WHO’S WHO?

VALIENTE

The alpha bull at Casa de Campeones and archenemy to Ferdinand. He’s smart. Calculating. Knows how to get under your skin and into your head. He feels threatened by Ferdinand, not just because of his reputation and size, but because, deep down, Valiente knows that they are more alike than he would care to admit.

LUPE

This gal is a “calming” goat whose job is to calm aggressive bulls. Lupe is a frenzied, sometimes loud, and always – always – a bad singer! Her dream is to coach a fighting bull to greatness and to prove that there is more to her than meets the eye.

FERDINAND

The movie’s main star is Ferdinand - a super-sized version of a regular bull who is viewed as a fierce beast by most. But this guy’s true nature is unlike his appearance. He likes the simple things in life – a light breeze, a nice flower, or the cool shade of a cork tree. His compassion for others is considered a weakness, but in the end, it’s his strength. 30 FACEBOOK.COM/ITGIRLMAG

NINA

Nina is a little girl and Ferdinand’s best friend on the farm. She plays the guitar for him, plants flowers with him and eats breakfast with him. Nina has no fear of Ferdinand as she can see what the world can’t - his kind-hearted and sweetnatured innocent soul.

FERD


! e y

MOVIE,

d d on he owers akfast fear n see - his eetul.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

Ferdinand’s life of leisure on the family farm is disrupted when he is taken to a bull training school called, Casa de Campeones, where his kind and peaceful manner is unlike the other bulls. With the help of a neurotic goat named, Lupe and three crazy hedgehogs, he gains the courage to remain true to himself, whilst working on a way to escape and bring his new friends back with him to the home he loves.

ND.

FERDINA

THE HORSES

- HANS, GRETA AND KLAUS As a group, they dislike the bulls and consider themselves superior. But they get what they deserve during a dance-off against the bulls.

MAQUINA

This emotionless bull has a square head and speaks only in moans and grunts. As with Ferdinand, though, appearances can be deceiving, and Maquina’s robotic nature hides a secret, heartfelt friendship with a bunny.

EL PRIMERO

ANGUS

A Scottish bull with anger issues. He’s got a short-temper, a thick accent and a vocabulary that no one can understand. His overgrown hair hangs like a curtain over his eyes, shielding him from many of life’s simple joys.

The greatest matador in the long, history of Spanish bullfighting. Don’t worry if you can’t remember that. He’ll remind you. Frequently. Tall, lithe, and full of...flourish, he arrives at Casa de Campeones to select a bull for his final fight. He is the bestest of the best and has the best looking face of all the faces in all of Spain and quite possibly the world.

ALL ABOUT THE...

Zebra

l Zebras are found in parts of Africa and can live in the wild for up to 25 years. l No two sets of zebra stripes are the same. Zebras may even use stripe patterns to help them recognise each other. Pretty cool, huh? l They have excellent vision and their night vision is believed to be as good as an owls. Wow! l A baby zebra can run when it is just an hour old. l Zebras are constantly on the move for fresh grass to eat and water to drink. They'll travel thousands of kilometres in search of green pastures to fill their bellies.

WHY HAS MY PET BUDGERIGAR STOPPED EATING FOOD? This could be a very serious problem for your little budgie. They usually eat a lot of food each day, especially when the weather is cold. There could be a number of reasons why your little bird isn't eating, including infections, kidney problems, or even a possible tumour somewhere. The best idea is to take your budgerigar to the vet so they can treat her.

MEET MY PET! To It GiRL, This is my boxer, Mandy. She is so cute and thinks she is human. She likes eating chicken, pasta and frozen meat bones, and going on car rides with us whenever she can. She's very spoilt by my whole family and I love her lots and lots. Emily-Jane, 10, Somerville, Vix

5 reasons to HEAD TO THE beach

PHOTO: SHUTTERSTOCK

Sunburn is your skin’s response to damage by the sun’s rays. The redness is caused by extra blood being sent to the burnt area to assist wth healing. Ouch!

l GOOD EXERCISE: Swimming (or even jumping in the waves!) builds muscle strength and increases your overall fitness. Winning! l RELAXING: Being in the water is beneficial for your body but it also relaxes the mind, regulates breathing and gets your blood flowing! l WHOLE BODY WORKOUT: An ocean swim and running through the sand, gives almost all your muscles a great work out! l OTHER BENEFITS: Salt water is great for skin irritations, wounds, hayfever and sinus. l FUN TIMES: The beach is a lot of fun and a great way to cool down. Just remember to slip, slop, slap and be sun and water safe!

WANT TO IMPROVE your night vision? Mllnch ON SOME CARROTS. THEY’LL KEEP YOUR eyes nice and healthy!

FILL UP ON THE RIGHT STUFF

Next time you come home from school hungry, don’t dive for the cookie jar. Go for something that is high in protein, like a yogurt or hardboiled egg. Protein keeps you fuller for longer and won’t give you a sugar rush!

Fruit & VEG! Q: A:

My mum is always making me eat fruits and vegetables. Why are they so important to eat?

Fruits and vegetables provide our bodies with water, fibre and lots of nutrients that help our bodies function properly. Studies show that people who eat lots of fruits and vegetables are less likely to have certain illnesses and health problems. So next time your mum is making you eat the healthy stuff, know it’s for your own good! 49


Sneak Peek Read!

NEVERMOOR: THE TRIALS OF MORRIGAN CROW Get lost in this addictive new series abo ut a cursed girl who escapes death and finds herself in a mag ical world, but is then tested beyond her wildest imagination ...

‘I

know what you’re thinking,’ said Jupiter as they locked Octavia up in a private parking garage. He pulled a chain next to the vast rolling door and it descended. The air was frosty, turning their breath to clouds of steam. ‘Nevermoor. If it’s so great, why haven’t you heard of it? Truth is, Morrigan, this is the best place – the best place – in all the Unnamed Realm.’ He paused to slip out of his tailored blue overcoat and drape it around Morrigan’s shoulders. It was much too long for her, and her arms didn’t quite reach the end of the sleeves, but she hugged it close, revelling in its warmth. Jupiter ran one

hand through his wilting coppery updo and, taking Morrigan’s hand with the other, led her along the chilly streets as the sky began to lighten. ‘We’ve got great architecture,’ he continued. ‘Lovely restaurants. Reasonably reliable public transport. The climate’s great – cold in winter, not‐cold in not‐winter. Much as you’d expect. Oh, and the beaches! The beaches.’ He looked thoughtful. ‘The beaches are rubbish, actually, but you can’t have everything.’ Morrigan was struggling to keep up, not just with Jupiter’s rapid‐ fire monologue but also with his long, skinny legs, which were half‐skipping, half‐running down a street signposted humdinger avenue. ‘Sorry,’ she panted, half‐ hobbling and half‐limping from the cramp that was beginning to seize her calf. ‘Could we . . . slow . . . down a bit?’ ‘Can’t. It’s almost time.’

‘Time . . . for what?’ ‘You’ll see. Where was I? Beaches: rubbish. But if you want entertainment, we’ve got the Trollosseum. You’ll love that. If you love violence. Troll fights every Saturday, centaur roller derby Tuesday nights, zombie paintball every second Friday, unicorn jousting at Christmas and a dragonriding tournament in June.’ Morrigan’s head was spinning. She’d heard stories about a small centaur population in Far East Sang and she knew there were dragons in the wild, but they were incredibly dangerous – who would think of riding one? And trolls, zombies? Unicorns? It was hard to tell whether Jupiter was serious. They turned into a street called Caddisfly Alley, flat‐out sprinting now down the twisting, maze‐like backstreet. Morrigan thought it would never end, but at last they stopped outside a curved wooden door with a small sign reading Hotel Deucalion in faded gold lettering.

Looming in the doorway was a cat. Not just a cat. A giant cat. The biggest, scariest, toothiest, shaggiest cat she’d ever seen in her life. It sat back on its haunches and still struggled to fit in the frame. Its face was squashed and wrinkled as though it’d run into a wall, and it snuffled and fuffed just like a huge, prehistoric version of the kitchen cats at Crow Manor. If she’d been shocked by its appearance, that was nothing to how Morrigan felt when it turned its enormous grey head towards Jupiter and spoke. ‘I see you’ve brought my breakfast.’

‘You . . . live in . . . a hotel?’ Morrigan puffed. But Jupiter didn’t hear her. He was fumbling with a brass ring of keys when the door flew open and Morrigan nearly fell over backwards.

Super SCHOOLS

School is compulsory in Indonesia. Students start with six years of primary school and then move on to three years of junior school. After that, students can leave to work, or continue on to senior secondary school. Most schools have uniforms that children must wear and the school day starts at 7:00am, with classes to 12:30pm. The students have a break for lunch, and then regain class from 1:00pm until 5:30pm. A long day!

FantasticFOODS

The people of Indonesia love to cook rich, flavoursome foods such as curries and some Asian-inspired cuisines. Their national dish is thought to be Nasi Goreng, which is a type of fried rice that is made with a sticky soy sauce. Other yummy foods special to Indonesian cuisine are Rujak, which is a spicy fruit salad, Uli Petataws - potato fritters, and Bubur Ayam which is a type of rice porridge. Tanjung Puting is a national park home to some awesome Orangutans!

SightsTO SEE

Across the various islands you’ll find plenty to see and do. Lake Toba on the island of Sumatra is a volcanic lake that’s over 100 kilometres long. It’s home to Pulau Samosir, which is an island within the island, and because of the volcanic activity many years ago, the water is warm. On the island of Sulawesi you’ll find Bunaken, a diving spot famous for all the cool sealife you will see and in the town of Ubud, in Bali, you can learn local crafts and cultural dances.

School holidays, summer and Christmas. Oh, yeah! Selena and Justin getting back together. We’ve always been Jelena fans so we’re excited! Ice-blocks and Slurpees. We can’t get enough of them in summer!

NOT The flies. They’re everywhere and they’re really annoying! Not being able to sleep at night because it’s too hot. So much tossing and turning! Not seeing your BFFs every day at school. Booo!
