Have no fear of fun in this spooky Cricket!

Dancing skeletons? Shadow monsters? Ghostly ghouls? Take courage! It’s all in good fun. You’ll also enjoy reading about a boy who rescues a lost flock of migrating swifts who roost in his school chimney in Oregon each fall, and historical fiction depicting the courageous escape of Danish Jews from Nazi-occupied Denmark during World War II. There’s a new art contest, a Halloween Crossbird Puzzle, and the bugs have an unusual adventure raking autumn leaves.
