Staff Reviews

Circus Mirandus is a great book. I couldn’t put it down! This book was full of adventure and excitement. Every chapter made me more and more excited about the book! I think this book is a great book for 4th and 5th graders that enjoy books full of magic, but this could be a great class read that I would recommend to any 4th or 5th grade classes. All in all, Circus Mirandus is a great book that I can recommend to lots of people to enjoy!

A New York Times bestseller

"A beguiling first novel"--Gregory Maguire in the New York Times

"Takes readers to a marvelous place."--The Wall Street Journal

Even though his awful Great-Aunt Gertrudis doesn't approve, Micah believes in the stories his dying Grandpa Ephraim tells him of the magical Circus Mirandus: the invisible tiger guarding the gates, the beautiful flying birdwoman, and the magician more powerful than any other--the Man Who Bends Light. Finally, Grandpa Ephraim offers proof. The Circus is real. And the Lightbender owes Ephraim a miracle. With his friend Jenny Mendoza in tow, Micah sets out to find the Circus and the man he believes will save his grandfather.

The only problem is, the Lightbender doesn't want to keep his promise. And now it's up to Micah to get the miracle he came for.
