Ring in the New Year with Cricket!

Enjoy an adventure in ancient Mesopotamia, do your best in a spelling bee, meet a shape-shifting selkie, and learn the cool history of ice. You'll start the year off right with a futuristic fantasy about a girl who is challenged by a puzzling riddle, and delve into adventure with a new four-part Icelandic tale about a girl who studies mysterious runes to see into the “other world.” There’s a new Crossbird Puzzle, a story contest you can enter, and when the bugs in Cricket Country host a spelling bee, the judge turns out to be—Ugly Bird? Awkee grawkee!
