Author of Circus Mirandus, Tumble & Blue, and The Bootlace Magician .

Hi there! And thanks for reading!

Exciting news:

When it was time to make the decision, young Ephraim's boots (and laces) were already in the book, and knot tying seemed like just the thing!

*Edited to add link.*

I'm going through old responses, and I see I didn't answer the first half of your question!

The inspiration for different parts of the book came from a lot of places. You can read all about them on my website here, under the FAQ section: http://cassiebeasley.com/faq-circus-m...

Hi, Natalie! Thank you so much. I love Tumble and Blue's story, too. Tumble is my favorite of all my characters.
