While lively in both text and illustration, this book’s unfortunate and unexamined acceptance of animal circus acts makes it obsolete.

So instead...the circus comes to her! This playful, imaginative tale from Candace Fleming will have readers smiling and joining in the fun of Emma's amazing circus.
