4.5 stars

Such a wonderful journey full of dreams, mazes, and magic!

I loved getting swept away in this unique book. I loved the descriptions of the people and the circus itself. My favorite characters were Widget, Poppet, and Bailey. They reminded me of myself in a lot of ways. I also liked the the story of Celia and Marco. I thought the way their story was told was really beautiful. My favorite parts of the circus would be the cloud maze and the star gazer.

Well worth the read, and would be something I would revist again in the not too distant future.

60.0% "Poppet, Widget, and Bailey have become my favorite characters as the story has progressed. The Cloud Maze is my favorite attraction so far, as jumping into clouds sounds really fun."

Lea Just bought this one -- waiting for it to arrive from UK!

Kate Yay! Let me know how it is when you get it in your clutches and have time to read it.

Cindy I just started over again immediately - I haven't done that since I was 10 years old!
