Miracles, magic, goodness, faith, home. Circus Mirandus by Cassie Beasley is a gift you should give yourself and the children (4th grade and up) you love. Micah Tuttle and his Grandpa Ephraim are characters you will fall in love with at first sight. Micah's circumstances called to mind James and the Giant Peach and his Aunt Gertrudis would fit right in with Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker. There were twists and turns, tangles if you will (this is part of the story!) but this book will captivate you, delight you, break your heart a little and end the way all books should, in my opinion. (Spoiler alert.....happy!)
So glad I finally read this book as it has been sitting on my TBR pile all summer long. Don't make the same mistake! Read it today.
