Set in the 1920’s, The Circus Thief is a sweet story about a little boy, Georgie, that just wants to go to the circus in town. Upon permission of taking a friend along with them, Georgie and his father head to the circus. After being chosen to ride the star of the circus, an Arabian named Roxie, Georgie finds himself in a situation. Georgie’s father saved the day for not only Georgie, but Roxie too.
The illustrations were beautiful and detailed. My seven year old said that the expressions on the character’s faces helped to show the emotion of the story.
I read The Circus Thief to my ten and seven year old and they both loved it.
The Circus Thief publishes on November 6, 2018.
