Dennis Publishing has announced the launch of a new addition to The Week's family of products: The Week Junior.

Aimed at smart, curious children aged between 8 and 14, the new current affairs magazine is designed to help young minds make sense of the world around them.

The title is the first ever paid-for print brand extension for the Dennis flagship title The Week and follows a similar format, with lots of balanced and fascinating articles on every page.

From news to nature, science to geography, and film to coding, it covers a huge range of exciting topics, and gives children the information they need, the way they want it: concise, colourful, immediate, exciting.

It will be edited by Anna Bassi, who has joined Dennis Publishing after working on children's magazines at Egmont, BBC and Eaglemoss. She will be joined by ten editorial staff.

"I've been creating children's magazines for more than twenty years and I can honestly say that The Week Junior is the most exciting launch I've ever been a part of," said Bassi. "It's a truly unique publication, its mission is to inform, engage, entertain and – ultimately – to empower young people to think for themselves. There are many opportunities for our readers to get involved too – I'm really looking forward to hearing what they have to say."

The Week Junior will launch on Friday 20 November, priced at £1.99, and will be available on subscription and exclusively at Sainsbury's before going into national retail early next year.
