A very sparse text that an unseen narrator uses to tell us what they saw in their dream. Beautiful pictures of various circus performers was the dream.

This book has pretty pictures and helped me learn words like "acrobat" and "ringmaster" before I went to the circus for the first time.

This book has no real plot or anything, and the pictures are alright. Nothing fancy.

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.

Wonderful Story time book. Includes great action words(twisting, laughing,jumping,roaring,juggling,spinning,etc) for children to follow throughout story time! Very cute illustrations.
Magical illustrations and a simple story about the circus.
