Nick’s parents always have a special surprise for him on his birthday, but this year he knows he’ll have the best birthday ever. Mom and Dad are taking him to the circus! The crowds and attractions are exciting, but Nick is accidentally separated from his parents. Even though he knows what to do if he gets lost, he’s scared—until a green-faced clown on towering stilts comes to his rescue. The bright colors and bustling energy of the circus shine from each of Vladimir Vagin’s lively illustrations in this touching story of a day filled with surprises.
