Emma's Circus

Candace Fleming; illustrations by Christine Davenier

Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)


Emma has never been to a circus, so she is especially excited to see a circus parade in town. But her father says she can't go and see it—they have to get their farm ready for winter. So instead...the circus comes to her! This playful, imaginative tale from Candace Fleming will have readers smiling and joining in the fun of Emma's amazing circus.

Praise for Emma's Circus

“Davenier’s happy, splashy ink and watercolor illustrations tell the story with dynamic, cluttered detail . . . A fun and rollicking read-aloud to share with a group.” —School Library Journal
