Dive into mysteries of the sea in this month’s Cricket.

Cricket takes the plunge with tales of the sea, including a heroic dog who only responds to “sailor talk,” a sea tale from Lapland about wizards and mermaids, and a romantic tale of a young woman who clings to her island home when wooed by a handsome sailor. For landlubbers, there’s also a fantasy story filled with dragons, a daring World War II adventure story, and a biography of the inventor and keen businesswoman Madam C. J. Walker.

Enter our poetry contest, laugh at Ladybug’s new dance partner, and ponder Old Cricket’s wisdom on the many dragons he has known and loved.
