Cover Story: Dahling



Hold onto your snozzcumbers… This edition is a phizz-whizzing, jumpsquiffling, gloriumptious look at the wonderful world of Roald Dahl. Annabel Brady-Brown explores how his books have not only captured generations of children, but have inspired numerous adaptations on – and sometimes off – screen, including Matilda the Musical and Steven Spielberg’s The BFG. And Emily Laidlaw looks at how books aimed at young people also have plenty to offer for the young at heart.

Also in this issue...

Sophie Quick visits Salt Lake City to find out how they’ve housed nearly all their chronically homeless; fashionista Clare Press makes some cutting revelations about the garment industry; Missy Elliot finally returns to ask ‘WTF’; and in Roving Eye, we visit a circus like no other in Mongolia.

Mick from Perth stars in the Vendor Profile this edition. We have Streetsheet contributions from Glenn F and Andrew G in Sydney; Tony H and Mark W in Adelaide; and Bill A in Fremantle. We also have a snap of vendor Keith volunteering during the Long Table Lunch in Perth.
