It’s no trick to treat yourself to Cricket!

Who’s afraid of their toilet? You might be, if you were an ancient Roman. Laugh and learn as you read the “Terrifying Toilets of Ancient Rome.” You’ll also enjoy stories about an escaped Roman slave who earns his freedom, a flock of birds with very ruffled feathers, a wide-awake boy who foils an alien invasion while the world sleeps, and the goofy Dr. Frankenswine. There’s a new haunted Crossbird, an art contest with an autumn theme, and the bugs carve a newy-mewy pumpkin head for the Headless Horseman.
