Look out, dog lovers! Clementine is coming to the big city to join the circus. Packing up and leaving her small, boring town, she’s moving to a fifty-story building, one block wide, and she has to start her job in just three days! Who to meet? What to eat? Where to buy her supplies? Clementine loves the city—uptown and downtown—but how will she find time to practice her juggling act with so much to do? In a fun, quirky style reminiscent of Maira Kalman, Jessie Hartland introduces a standard poodle who’s not standard at all!
