Pottery, poetry, polo, and pigs! Oh my! This edition of CRICKET Magazine looks at animals, sports with animals, traveling with animals, as well as famous sculptors, railway snacks, and the follow up to previous serial stories!


The pigs fly, the mice ride trains, and the bugs of CRICKET Magazine are always around to help your kids make the most of everything they read. From the true stories of history about the girl who sculpted Abraham Lincoln, to fantastical sci-fi fantasies, and everything in-between, your kids will be entertained by rich folktales, charming poems, delicious recipes, and, as always, sophisticated and vibrant illustrations. There’s something for everyone.
