You know, I hadn't been to the circus until my children were young and my hubby took us all. I am so jealous that you got to go behind the scenes! LOL

Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy seeing you on this site!

I would love this book, when I was very little my uncle used to work with the circus and traveled with them, its a long story but he invented the machine that sews names on hats you used to be able to buy at the circus and later, Disneyland, anyway, he used to bring me to the circus when it came to New York and was performed in tents, my best memories are going with him and then behind the scenes to get up close and personal with the elephants and other animals...I also met a few of the sideshow people, who were quite strange...;)

Many thanks for the great review
hugs

Awesome book.

This was a wonderful book, and I can't imagine someone being put off by the circus setting.

My wife and I both devoured it, and we've since gifted copies to my parents (mid-60s), friends (40s) and even teenagers. ALL have loved it.
