Mailbox Magazine
Ginger loves the circus life, but she longs for a little girl companion. Then, one day, she's given a spotlight stunt and the opportunity to be noticed by the girl of her dreams! Will fear and the snooty Prunella stand in Ginger's way? Readers will be on the edge of their seats as they cheer this circus pup's determination and courage.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A circus dog longs for a home with a family; PW said, "There has seldom been a more personable canine in or out of a circus tent." Ages 3-7. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 --This refreshing story successfully combines an endearing main character with a suspenseful plot and suitably happy ending. Ginger is a small brown puppy who has always lived with the circus. During the show, she loves to watch the children in the audience; at night she dreams of having her own human family and a little girl to love. When Sir Deedrick tells Ginger about three new clowns needing a hardworking dog for their act, she is convinced that she can handle the difficult jump it entails, but she loses her confidence and her rival, Prunella, gets the job. All works out in Ginger's favor, however, and she lands in the arms of the little girl of her dreams. Ernst's captivating pen and ink with ink-wash illustrations harmonize perfectly with the text. Using subtle tones of blue, pink, and brown, the animal and human characters are depicted in a stylized manner that goes beyond simple cartooning. The comforting roundness of the characters is realized through gentle shadings, careful crosshatching, and diffused highlights. Ernst's attention to detail pays off in every aspect of this book: the page design is top-notch, each character possesses a distinct personality, and the endpapers actually help advance the story. The large format, eye-catching pages, delightful collection of dogs, and circus setting make the book a welcome addition to picture-book collections and a natural choice for sharing aloud. --Denise Anton Wright, Library Book Selection Service, Inc., Bloomington, IL
