Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The appeal of circuses is so primal that only a sociopath could resist the lure of the Big Top. Hilary Knight's picture book The Circus Is Coming reenacts the three-ring excitement of these family entertainments. Now back in print, this classic from the late 1970s features Knight's colorful illustrations of puckish clowns, high-flying aerial artists, and ferocious lions.
