Cricket Magazine History
For almost 40 years, Cricket has delighted and entertained children and teens around the globe with the "best of the best" in children's literature. Cricket's guiding principle is the belief that imaginative young readers would respond enthusiastically to wonderful stories accompanied by world-class illustrations, without any advertising. Marianne Carus, founder and Editor-in-Chief of Cricket, says,
"The way to create in children a love of reading and an appreciation of good writing is to offer them beautifully illustrated, lively, well-written, interesting stories that sustain a witty tone and a sense of humor. I am convinced that children will respond to quality if it's not forced upon them but presented in an engaging manner."
Mrs. Carus is well-respected and much-loved in the world of children's publishing for her lifelong commitment to bringing top-quality fiction and nonfiction to young readers. In 2003, her unique contribution to children's literature was recognized with an honorary doctors degree in humane letters from Illinois Wesleyan University, and in 2006 she was inducted into the Association of Educational Publishers Hall of Fame for a lifetime of work educating children.
