Peek Inside Our Past Boxes


Meet the Creators

Kirsten & Aiyven are 13 & 12 year old sister-writers who are completely mad about books. Voracious readers & book reviewers, they have each written & published a middle grade novel . They also do children & middle grade book reviews on Facebook & YouTube all in the hope of promoting literacy and diversity in middle-grade literature. Their plan is simple "To make reading for pleasure cool again by sharing their love for reading & writing with everyone!". With the Happier Every Chapter subscription box, they aim to create an engaged community of readers through monthly boxes of bookish bliss for 8 - 14 year olds with junior boxes for 4-7 year olds too! 


Watch our creators speak about Happier Every Chapter on Channel 4 Steph's Packed Lunch. 

Diversity, Equality & Inclusion matters. We experienced this first-hand when we were invited to take part in Channel 4 Steph's Packed Lunch Small Business Market featuring kidpreneurs. As young black girls, we were very humbled to be invited to talk about our passion and small business. Did you know that 1 in 8 children in the U. K. does not own a single book? Or that less than 5% of books in the U.K. have a diverse leading main character. At Happier Every Chapter, we hope to change the status quo, one book and one subscriber at a time.

Refugees are people who have been forced to flee their home and country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disasters (such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis).
