Ride a flying carpet to this month’s CRICKET.
What happens when your best friend turns on you for no reason? Find out how one girl faces the challenge, and makes a surprising new friend, in “Bully.”
Have you ever wondered why you have so many mismatched pairs of socks? (If you haven’t, you mom or dad probably has.) Find out the real reason in “The Exodermis Protection Suit.”
Do you love libraries? And aliens? Then let CRICKET transport you to “The Intergalactic Collection of Knowledge and Records,” where two friendly and bookish brothers from Neptune encounter an abducted human.
In this issue we begin a new five-part serial “The Forty Thieves,” an original story told from the point of view of Morgiana in the Arabian Nights.
There’s a true story about an enormous aircraft carrier made of . . . ice and straw—an incredibly strong material, Pykrete.
And in “On Dragonwings” a young stonecutter dreams about a new life.
All this, plus the latest episode of the bugs and more Blots from the Inkwell.
Regular features include: The Letterbox, Cricket Country, Ugly Bird’s Crossbird Puzzle, Cricket League, Cricket and Ladybug, and Old Cricket Says.
