Mastodon--it's what's for dinner, in this issue of Cricket. You'll find many mouth-watering choices on our exquisite menu. You'll sample tales about tailless cats, cats from outer space, and cats that came to America from the court of Marie Antoinette. Or perhaps you'd prefer to savor the story of a beautiful Chinese maiden who must marry a frightening barbarian. And for dessert--a Micronesian folk tale about a really nasty ogre. Plus a new art contest and a scrumptious recipe for Mother's Day. Bon appetite et bonne lecture!
