Sail into Adventure with Cricket!

This Cricket includes stories from India, China, and Japan. You’ll enjoy the poetry of Rabindranath Tagore, the courage of an Indian girl who learns to stand up for herself, a Hindu legend of how the boy Krishna defeated a snake monster, and the tale of a tenth-century Chinese girl who became a legendary sea goddess. You’ll also sail into adventure with the women pearl divers of Japan, Irish immigrants who came to America to escape the Great Potato Famine, and the true story of the female navigator who helped set a speed record for a clipper ship. There's a magical Irish legend, a new poetry contest, some seasick riddles, and Ladybug and Pussywillow travel to the big city to see the Cricket editors. Mewy surprise!
