Imagination takes flight with Cricket.

Step inside your brain with “Two Amazing Tales of Memory” and “The Orb,” a science fiction story about a twelve-year-old who enters a mysterious machine that decides the destiny of everyone in her society—or tries to. Even Ladybug and Ugly Bird switch brains in Cricket Country!

And in the climax of “Nodi and the Romans,” a family of pirates attempts to ransom the future Roman emperor Julius Caesar—and to escape his revenge alive.

You’ll learn about the fascinating ruby-throated hummingbird, enjoy a Persian tale about the hidden society of beggars, and express yourself in a poetry contest.
