Description

Night after night, little Rufus Chandelier watches from the wings while the rest of his family puts on “the greatest show in town.” But Rufus isn’t quite big enough to be a part of the show. Until the night when everything goes terribly wrong, and it is Rufus Chandelier who makes certain that the show goes on. With winsome, colorful illustrations, Vincent X. Kirsch’s entertaining story shows that the greatest reward is simply the chance to help others—no matter how little you might be.

Praise For The Chandeliers

“There are humorous visual details in the bustling watercolor-and-line compositions…and children will enjoy searching for the tiny mouse wearing a giraffe costume in every scene.”--Kirkus

 

 

"…a delightful turn on the theme of the quiet child who becomes a hero, and certain to be summoned for many encores.”--Publishers Weekly
