Warm up winter with Cricket!

In this frosty issue, two school friends try to solve the mystery of “The Cat with No Meow,” a young Centaur risks her life to make peace with the king of the Dwarves, and sisters crash-land on an uncharted moon in a science fiction thriller. You’ll also read about the real Robinson Crusoe, how Shetland ponies worked as pit ponies in mines, and begin a five-part Russian folk tale, “Katerina and the Bright Falcon.” There’s a snowy Crossbird Puzzle, a new story contest to enter, and the bugs get rolled by Pussywillow in a snowball fight. All in this month’s Cricket. Happy New Year!
