Overview

In Felix's latest adventure, he joins the circus, visiting new places and learning about life under the big top. He finds time to send letters from every stop to his best friend, Sophie. The book includes juggling games with three colorful scarves.

One day Sophie and Felix do something they have never done before. They go to the circus, but after the performance Sophie is alarmed because her dear Felix is missing. Even though he has already taken many amazing trips without her--to visit Santa Claus at the North Pole and even to the moon--he has always returned safely after his adventures. Still, she is very worried about him. A week later a letter arrives from Felix explaining that he has been kipnapped by a mischievous chimpanzee and that he is in the Heartland touring with the circus.

Children will enjoy opening the envelopes and reading Felix's letters to Sophie about all the interesting places he visits and about the circus animals and the performers from all around the world. This book is packaged with juggling games and scarves to add to the fun. While awaiting Felix's return, Sophie learns so much that she is inspired to put on a circus with her family. But Felix also misses Sophie, and at last he arrives home. Sophie is overjoyed to have her loyal friends back by her side--at least until his next adventure.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Felix, Sophie's lively stuffed rabbit, is the hero of a series of adventures. Here he disappears during an exciting trip to the circus, where Sophie has been invited by new friends. She feels better when she learns that he has been snatched by Coco, the performing monkey, and is traveling with her circus friends. We follow Felix's activities with the circus and Sophie's life at home with her friends as they make their own circus fun. The gimmick, which kids love but which makes this a difficult choice for library purchase, is that Felix's tale is told by him in a series of four letters, each in its own real envelope with postmark. Although the story is lengthy, it is told with present-tense liveliness and details to hold reader-listener attention to the happy reunion at the end. Droop's colored drawings supply a considerable amount of detail, from grandma's living room, to circus mobile classroom, to Sophie at work on her circus picture. Although small, they add a fine sense of place and people as vignettes and more complete scenes. There is a small subplot supporting acceptance of others who may be different from us, like Sophie's circus friends. The extra bonus is in an envelope on the back cover--three colored scarves with instructions for "Juggling with Felix." 2000 (orig. 1999), Abbeville Press Inc., Ages 6 to 9, $18.95.
