The Cool Crazy Crickets to the Rescue

By David Elliott
Illustrated by Paul Meisel

The Crickets are back and they will have beginning readers jumping to join this cool crazy club!

Leo, Phoebe, Miranda, and Marcus, the friendly neighborhood kids (and Noodles the dog, their mascot) who started the club featured in The Cool Crazy Crickets, are back for a second book of easy-to-read adventures. On a quest for summer pocket money, they’re busy little-brother-sitting, pet-sitting, and running a lemonade stand. But when a one-eyed stray cat needs their help, will all their hard work be for nothing? The Crickets and their exploits — humorously illustrated by Paul Meisel — will have beginning readers jumping to join this cool crazy club!
