Mush north with Cricket!

This month’s Cricket mushes north into snowy territory as it celebrates the holiday season. You’ll enjoy an Icelandic tale about the mythical sea people, and ride over thin ice with an Inuit boy and his sled dog. You’ll also enjoy a special Thanksgiving dinner in the Old West, a heartfelt Christmas story set in rural Oregon during the Depression, and a “forgotten” recipe for holiday cookies. There are the concluding episodes of the fantasy stories “To Save Arrhinsal” and “Aunt Maud’s Secret,” a new poetry contest, and Ladybug goes skating with polar bears.
