my 3 years old twin boys loved it. The beautiful illustration with bright colors and the rhymes captured their attention. They also enjoyed scanning over each page to see the hidden animals. I was a hit even for their younger brother

Shipwreck, close to drawing animals, scary faces of antagonist could be frightening to younger audience.

A captivating story that features circus animals and the kids of a town. The story is written in rhyme, so it is fun to read. When I read it to my granddaughters, they regularly interrupt the story, in order to count the animals in the illustration, to confirm the correct number of animals.

So much fun to read out loud, and oh, so cleaver. I love it when author’s creativity surprises me. Chris Van Dusen delivers as always.

The first half of the book was a little dark, but we loved the second half when the sun came out! We especially love playing I Spy to find the animals at the end!

My six year old loved this book--it's fun to read out loud (I'm a bit of a sucker for rhyming in picture books, I'll admit) and the pictures are beautiful. We had fun finding the hiding animals on a few pages. A friend recommended it to us, and I'm so glad she did. Plus there's a fun note in the back from the author that tells you the historical event that the book was inspired by. Super cute.
