Spooky stories, petrifying poems, ghastly games, horrifying humor—could it be that this edition of CRICKET Magazine is all about Halloween? 


Beyond just great games, awesome articles, and inviting illustrations, CRICKET Magazine gives you some history of our modern-day Halloween traditions, recipes that will help you celebrate the season, some fascinating fantasy and scintillating science fiction stories, and more.
