Enjoy haunted happenings in Cricket.

A magic hat brings a scarecrow to life; a girl trying to find the library in the fog wanders into the cemetery by mistake and meets some goofy ghosts; and an aging time traveler tries to reunite with the woman he fell in love with centuries ago.

There’s a funny story about a cute little cat who resists going to the vet, a true story about how Polish doctors in World War II saved their village by cleverly staging a typhus epidemic, and a nature story about a goose and a swan who help each other when they miss their migration.

All this, plus book recommendations and letters from other kids, a Crossbird puzzle, a new poetry contest, and the bugs scare themselves telling ghost stories around the campfire. Boo!
