In the Buginning!

Cricket kicks off its 50th-anniversary year with a lineup of stories about ancient cave dwellers, a girl who raises Husky pups in Alaska, a sci-fi adventure with penguins on a frozen spaceship, historical fiction about a real baseball game played on ice, and the inspiring true story of one-armed virtuoso concert pianist. There’s a new Crossbird Puzzle, a story contest you can enter, and the bugs go on a time-travel adventure to bring back Cricket’s first issue.
