Overview

What could be better than being a clown child? You juggle eggs all day and eat dinner with the Tallest Man East of the Missouri—and you never have to go to school!

But to Olivia, a real-life clown child, the glitter and glam of the circus life aren’t so exhilarating. Her dreams are filled with simple things like bathtubs and homes that don’t bump all over the prairie. But when a sudden blowdown storm roars over the big top, Olivia gets a glimpse of life outside of the circus.What would it mean to give it up?

At once funny and touching, Clown Child offers a colorful peek at a wisdom that can’t be learned from books, and reminds us that home is not the place you live—it’s the people you love.
