Description

When clowns go on vacation, the whole world is a circus.

When the circus is over,
After the standing ovation,
What do clowns do
When they go on vacation?


They make us laugh until our sides ache, but these hardworking clowns just need a break. Now that the Big Top is folded and their bags are all packed, the Clownmans are taking a rest from their act. Whether they're climbing a mountain or digging for treasure, they always seem to have a nose for adventure. Wherever they go, whatever they do, they are always clowns through and through.

Nina Laden skillfully and seamlessly combines photomontage with vibrant gouache paintings to create a picture book chock-full of verbal and visual humor that will delight audiences of all ages.
