Beloved children's author and wilderness enthusiast Gary Paulsen has died at 82

Beloved author Gary Paulsen has passed away. Although he wrote over 200 books during his lifetime, he is best known for HATCHET and its sequels. His work made an impact on generations of young readers. Do you remember reading any of his books growing up?

https://www.npr.org/2021/10/14/1045981769/gary-paulsen-hatchet-author-obituary

Gary Paulsen — whose wilderness adventure Hatchet taught generations of kids to survive in the forest — worked as a farmhand, truck driver and satellite technician before turning to writing.

They all share the same roots and are part of one giant tree that weighs more than 13 million pounds! New stems keep growing, each a copy of the original tree that sprouted 80,000 years ago.

Shame on you for adding subliminal political messaging to the photos in a children's magazine! It's unacceptable, my children will not be allowed to look at these ever magazines again!
Dear Ask, You just outed the Easter Bunny to my 6yo. I understand if you felt you needed to be strongly science and truth based when answering this child’s question, but you needn’t have published it. I respect and appreciate Cricket Media and have faithfully subscribed to your magazines for over 30 years. Today, you crushed us.
Susan carr cardwel back in the day it was in black ac white. They've added all age groups
Hello! How much does it take to get the epals approval?
I wish I had seen these comments before I ordered three subscriptions from Cricket Media. We have Ask, Muse, and Faces, or I should say we do NOT have these as we never get the magazines. They assured me after the first time I contacted them that the issue was resolved and they extended our subscription end date. But two months later and we have yet to see another delivery. If you have a subscription, you shouldn’t have to keep bugging to get it delivered. Never again. Don’t bother!
I am so very confused. I went into your website to order a gift subscription to a teacher - a digital subscription and 53 copies of the print magazine for her students. My order was canceled on the website! So I called customer service. An agent took my information and promised someone would reply to me. No one did. So I called again today. After half an hour of the agent checking, I'm not sure what, we were disconnected. I called back. This time, somehow, I got an agent who knew what I wanted, almost! It took her more than 30 minutes to take my order. Even still she wanted to charge me the incorrect amount for the bulk order. I had to give her the prices listed on the website. In the end the order has been processed, I think. It has been, without a doubt, one of the most difficult online/telephone ordering experiences in my life. Your customer service agents don't seem to have all the information that they need, why? I had to explain to her what the products were that I wanted, as if she didn't know your products. I would have happily placed the order online, but it was canceled after I submitted my order. I just don't understand. I hope that someone will see this and look into your ordering processes and fix whatever is broken.
I'd like to get a COMPLETE REFUND for my subscription! It's December 23rd! And I placed an order September 20th! The subscription is not here in my mailbox and your careless implementation is validated! I did give you guys an opportunity to make amends but you guys at Cricket Media blew it! You have failed a customer and this is not how a business grows!
Do t waste time trying to order, lousy webpage and even worse customer service. Complaint filed with BBB and canceled transaction with my bank. Waste of 2 hours trying to order!!
DO NOT RENEW MY SUBSCRIPTION. YOU PROVIDE NO WAY ON YOUR WEBSITE TO DO THIS. THIS MAKES ME ANGRY.
Gentlepersons, Why is Perma Bound Books reprinting Grace Cornell Tall poems that were published in Cricket without my permission? Do they have your permission to reprint these poems, poems that I retain all legal rights to? If so, I must remind you of the agreement I have with Cricket Media; I gladly granted you permission to reprint GCT poems, but that did not include you granting permission to other publishers. I must remind you that GCT retained copyright to her poems published in Cricket Media, intellectual properties that I succeed. Please look into this as, if you did not grant permission, Cricket Media as well as me is being exploited, an egregious violation of intellectual property laws. I can be reached via messaging at Grace Cornell Grace Cornell Tall, American PoetGrace Cornell Tall, American Poet American Poet fb page that I manage and administrate. A copy of my notice to Perma Bound Books is posted on that page's timeline. Sincerely, David Thane Cornell Literary Trustee To Grace Cornell Tall Poetry.
Be careful of auto-renewal, subscribers. I received a notice about it, never replied though. Was thinking it over. Imagine my surprise when I saw a renewal charge on my bank account. I'd had not approved it. Who wants to do business with a company that operates this way?
We subscribed to Muse and Cricket growing up and I have gifted various subscriptions to young people recently. I'm extremely disturbed and disappointed to learn about the recent article in Ask about ice cream and its inaccurate and harmful depiction of slavery (described in detail below). Please change the way you approach stories, which can start by hiring more Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. https://www.facebook.com/cricketmedia/posts/1503276379859498
