Stan | 5 comments Pretty sure boy's name is Joel, starts with a "J" and he works on the farm, makes friends eventually with the farm kids and neighbors, they look down on him for being a stranger, a farmworker adult, is injured by a pitchfork during harvest and he performs a circus stunt and gets him off the pitchfork. he raises/trains a horse to do tricks and stunts, even spending some time outside with it when the horse is injured/sick. There is mention of a jalopy in the story(the farmer's car) so at least the 1900's.
I read this book at the Brownwood Public library around 1995-2000.

Boy gets new costume, his old costume is too small or damaged, made by farmer's wife(family) and trys out for ringling bros circus and gets hired at the end.
