KIWI Magazine Review:
The illustrations in this book bring the fantastic colors of the circus into your home (you might even smell some popcorn!). The author uses sparse text, but creates a visual wonderland of animals in fancy costumes.
For anyone with a beloved pet, this delightful and
heartwarming story set at the circus shows that quiet qualities like friendship, kindness, and loyalty are important and worthy.
Jane is an ordinary dog in an extraordinary circus. She isn’t strong, graceful, or brave like her family. When she tries to be those things, Jane just doesn’t feel like herself, but she also doesn’t feel special. Is she really meant for this kind of life? Her Ringmaster thinks so, but not for the reasons Jane believes.
