This is the charming story of a little bearded girl as she fights to save her circus from the clutches of an evil corporation. This is a rare novel insofar as it can be appreciated by a wide range of audiences; the cute and inoffensive characters allow for the younger readers to enjoy it, without it being dull or infantile for adults. The illustrations themselves are the highlight of this book, each panel appearing to be hand painted, allowing the colours to blend on the page. A wonderfully sweet novel told with skilful artwork, and a touch of immaturity.
