More than forty years ago, Joni Mitchell Ts music helped define a generation of young people. Now, one of her classic songs is introduced to a new generation through the remarkable art of Brian Deines.

The Circle Game," a charming nod to childhood dreams and memories, tells the story of a young boy experiencing the simple wonders of life: dragonflies in jars, the night sky, frozen streams, and carousels. As the years go by, cartwheels are replaced by car wheels and the boy Ts dreams change, but the sense of wonder remains.
The first Joni Mitchell song to be illustrated for children, "The Circle Game "captures the timeless magic of youth.
