This book is aimed at clowns and would-be clowns who want to improve their skills. Included are comedy routines as well as instructions on riding a unicycle, juggling, stilt-walking, applying makeup, mime, puppetry, and magic. The advice on employment possibilities is less useful than that on acquiring specific skills. Clown schools are mentioned, but no specifics are provided. Nonetheless, anyone interested in being a clown or becoming a better one will find this a treasure trove. Recommended for public libraries. Anne Twitchell, EPA Headquarters Lib., Washington, D.C.
