A Wonderland for boys and girls alike!!
By: Cassie Beasley
Genre: Juvenile fantasy
4 out of 5
This reminded of a circus version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - what a WONDERLAND for boys and girls alike. As an adult reading the book, it reinforced how important it is to stay in touch with your own imagination and encourage others to do the same. It can be a POWERFUL thing. Beasley not only draws out your imagination, but creates friends for you in the characters. Enter the circus and meet an elephant who does math or what about an invisible tiger - just let your imagination guide you. Micah along with his dying grandpa believe even if others in their lives feel differently. Do you?
I'm hoping Beasley will take us on another journey to Circus Mirandus again soon.
