Follow the road to Timbuktu with Cricket.

In this Cricket you’ll read about Mansa Musa, reputed to be the richest person in the history of the world, and the ongoing struggle to recover the lost treasures of his famous library in Timbuktu.

You’ll join Rosa Parks in the fight for civil rights; discover the determined battalion of African American women who got the mail got through to millions of soldiers in World War II; and reflect upon the inspiring history of America’s most successful revolt of enslaved people.

You’ll fly with a barnstormer’s plane, ponder the ancient wisdom of ancient Aramaic proverbs, attempt to divide an odd number of camels fairly in an old Bedouin math puzzle—and in Cricket Country, Sluggo delivers the bugs’ valentines via snail mail, of course.
