Description

A hilarious and vibrantly illustrated picture book about the circus!

Emeline's teacher, Miss Splinter, says the circus will be a great learning experience. Miss Splinter should know, because Miss Splinter knows everything. But while Miss Splinter delivers the lessons, Emeline is learning all by herself. Who is that joining the clowns? And riding the wild horse? Who’s the daring little acrobat performing the stunt on the high trapeze?

Step right up! Learn about the amazing circus acts! Marvel at brave Emeline! Enjoy the fun as Caldecott honoree Marjorie Priceman takes you on a splendiferous, hilarious, indisputably tremendous trip to the big top!
