A young acrobat shows his friends around the big top, but all is not as it seems. His uncle, the strongman, always manages to lose their wrestling matches. The scary-looking tattooed man is a regular Joe who likes to pull funny practical jokes. And the daring trapeze artists make their son do homework just like everyday parents! Lively watercolors capture the excitement of the circus and the coziness of home.

User Review  - Heila - Goodreads

What a great story about, "not judging a book by it's cover" (although that wouldn't be as true nowadays, in the era of cover art, would it?)! There are loads of delightful characters, and the illustrations are FABULOUS and go with the theme. Lovely, lovely. Read full review
