Last Night I Dreamed a Circus
The stars of the circus are depicted in splendid, dramatic portraits by noted watercolorist Zakanitch. Each vividly colored performer is set against a black background that invokes both a life in the spotlight and the focused landscape of dreams.

We loved this book as a bedtime story before we got into chapter books. The illustrations are artful and vivid and the text is soothing and hypnotic. I never tired of reading it, not even after the hundredth time, and my sons never tired of listening and looking at the pictures.
