In a deep, desolate forest, towering pines surround a circus tent. Pass through the tent doors and discover a mystical world. A thick mist hovers, the overture begins, and the stillness is interrupted by circus performing bears. The bears are controlled by the Ringmaster, Monsieur Büggbear, who obtained a magical baton with a secret power. Discard cute and cuddly, these creatures are from another realm. Shaggy, smart and sly ... this production has no humans and that is the magic of Bear Circus of Twilight.

I had to leave a review before giving this to my niece and nephew. Though I am sure they will love it, I really love it. It's different from most kids books, less cutesy Disney-ish characters and more original with a fun story.

My 2 kids loved this book from beginning to end! They even enjoyed reading the glossary at the end where they learned a few french words. Very good and highly imaginative.

The art design and writing is fun and serves as a break away from today's stereotypical children's book. Hopefully, the starting of a new era of children's books all together. I have to amuse myself with the review that was dismayed about it being about Twilight. Firstly, no Twilight fan would have purchased a children's book about Circus bears, within the Twilight fantasy. Secondly, the reading age is between 7-12 (e.g. not for hormonal teens desiring an obsessive boyfriend). Thirdly, it is sad that the word "Twilight," no longer references that beautiful transitioning period between Sunset and Nightfall but rather, has become a trademark, or branded name.

As a mother, I read to my 8-year-old son nightly and prefer a book I enjoy too. This book is written completely in verse and the rhymes make it fun to read again and again. The rhythm flows and should be put to music!

Wonderful!!!Wonderful!!!! Such creativity. Love the absence of so much color. You focus on the characters. What unusual bears too! Fun for the kids! A new and unusual idea brought to life. A must read for kids and a want to read for grown-ups (kids @ heart). Can't buy just one. Gotta have them for gifts. Thanks to the writer and illustrator for neat and new ideas on the market. KEEP WRITING and ILLUSTRATING to you both.

Whenever a kid's book freaks me out, I know it's good. Consider yourself warned before entering the circus tent.

I really enjoyed the book and so did my kids. What a creative story. I am going to buy as a gift for my pre-teen nephew. I really liked the end....which was actually a poem about the beginning.

What a wonderful surprise. I have twin boys and their teacher read this book in class. When I picked them up, I asked, "what did you do in school today?" Anticipating "nothing" simultaneously, they both told me about this book. I searched on B&N and asked, "is this it?" Since receiving it, I've read it every night - it's poetic.

As a father and 6th grade teacher, there's a formula for children's literature. After a while, all picture books seem routine and predictable. And then I stumbled across Bear Circus of Twilight: dark, poetic and challenging vocabulary -- a welcoming change from the norm. I typically do not read aloud in my class, however, I made an exception and then assigned a vocabulary/spelling list from the book. My daughter is only 6, but both age ranges equally enjoyed (to include myself). In the words of Oliver Twist, "more please."

I liked it, my wife liked it and our daughter liked it -- a win, win, win.

This book has a Dr. Seuss feel, but holds it own ... cartoon coming soon? Tim Burton can direct it and Danny Elfman can compose the music - LOL!

The illustrator is unique. The entire book is in black paint which creates a gloomy feel as the reader turns the pages. Then splotches of red paint direct your eyes to the main focus. The pictures suck you in.

There is nothing NOT to like about this book. It's cleverly written and creatively illustrated! Thankfully NOT "on the beaten path" from other childrens' books out there. F. Thomas Vincent ... where have you been all my life?! Our children NEED to have more of your work to add to their growning home library. Not only does this book keep the child (and adult) interested in "what will possibly happen next", it makes you want to actually be a part of this amazing story. PLEASE ... PLEASE ... PLEASE write a sequel!
