Spring has sprung in Cricket!

Enjoy a humorous story about a boy who gets trapped in his school overnight; the dramatic true story of how scientists in Denmark cleverly hid their golden Nobel Prize medals to escape the Nazis; and contemporary fiction about a young actor who suddenly takes on a major role to save the school play.

There’s historical fiction about three boys struggling with anti-Chinese sentiment as they try to immigrate to America in 1911; and a poignant story set in Shanghai during World War II, when 50,000 German Jews found a safe haven in the only country that would allow them in, China.

You’ll find a recipe especially for April Fools, a new story contest and Crossbird, and the bugs run for cover when Ladybug treats everybuggy to her epic spring poetry!
