Life in the Halls' house in Concord is many things, but it is never boring. Even something as simple as having a family friend come for a visit can lead to the unexpected, the enchanted, the mysterious -- in this case, the most amazing, most mysterious circus ever.

From Uncle Krishna's garbled phone message to the fantastic ending, the latest Hall Family Chronicle has all of the earmarks of a Jane Langton novel: fantasy, humor, and magic!

Join Eleanor, Eddie, Georgie, their new friend Andy, and his twelve very large friends -- more about them later -- in Jane Langton's The Mysterious Circus.
