Review:
The boy-narrator of this appealing, low-key story tells what happens when a circus comes to town and brings with it the glamour of jugglers, clowns, trapeze artists, wild animals and a new Circus Girl to his classroom. The girl, an acrobat, befriends the boy and helps him to understand and appreciate a shy classmate. Quiet pastel paintings provide a perfect accompaniment to a modest but affecting tale.
