“The circus is bursting with amazing sights and sounds, from clowns and elephants to a lady with a beard, in The Circus Thief, a delightfully nostalgic tale of compassion, kindness, and generosity.”
Foreword Clarion Reviews

“Bright, brave characters star in this exhilarating tale of magic and mystical creatures.”
Kirkus Reviews

My Review: Although this story had a fairly strange ending as we didn't get any real contiunation of it after they brought the horse. I still think that it was a great ending and story.  This one deals with saving an animal that has worked hard all its life and just wants something simple. Instead of being worked even more.  It is a great good feel book with a trip to the circus and I think kids will really enjoy this one.  

But you wont have to take my word for it make sure to check out our Youtube channel for a review with Anarece our 8 year old reviewer and you can hear first hand her thoughts on the story and the ending.
