Let your imagination soar on the wings of this month’s Cricket!

Take off with adventurous Pippa as she jumps aboard an experimental flying machine in the three-part historical fantasy “Dragonfly’s First Flight.” 

Love is in the air in “Delayed Reactions,” when a would-be basketball star finally talks to the girl of his dreams. 

In part 3 of “The Girl Who Writes the Future,” Fable Thatcher reads her fate in The Book of Shadows and sets off with Luminé for the lair of the wizard Khaos.

You’ll be inspired by the true life story of James Weldon Johnson, the “Voice for Freedom” who wrote “Lift Every Voice and Sing” and became a leader for racial justice. 

And you’ll laugh at the cartoon “Zita the Space Girl’ and the ridiculous fractured fairy tale “Captain Monday of the Forest Rangers.”

In Kenya, two Masai boys go hunting for honey with the help of a little bird. And the bugs nearly get stung when a real queen bee and her adoring subjects swarm into Cricket Country. 

All this, and a fantasy art contest, in Cricket!
