The Secret Circus

Written by: Johanna Wright

First line: Somewhere, deep in the city of Paris, there is a circus that is so small and so secret...only the mice know how to find it.

Why you should read this book: It's pretty much standard as far as what you'd expect from a mouse circus, but there's plenty of visual delight in the story of a bunch of weirdly fat mice going to a circus where a single kernel of popcorn is a great snack, and a pussy cat stands in for the lions in the ring. Lots of delicious silliness for kids in a high-interest book that focuses on the secret nature of the action. Good for reading aloud to the youngest listeners.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You refuse to take your kids to the circus.
