On sale now in all good newsagents is Titan Magazines new Shaun the Sheep – The Movie Magazine, the official companion to the cinematic release this month.
The title (the latest Totally… issue) sees Shaun and the The Flock journey to the city to save their farmer and was launched ahead of the Shaun the Sheep Movie on Friday (6th February).
Titan has previously published both Shaun the Sheep and Wallace & Gromit titles. The new magazine, which went on sale late last month features a collection of puzzles, games, mazes, word searches, board games, jokes and more.
The issue also comes with a free catapult (a rather bizarre choice of gift, perhaps, unless it’s pertinent to the movie – that Shaun is dab hand with all sorts of gadgets!) as well as an exclusive competition from Walker Books, offering ten fans the chance to win a collection of Shaun the Sheep The Movie books.
