The Circus Ship

By Chris Van Dusen
Illustrated by Chris Van Dusen

For ages 4–8

When a circus ship runs aground off the coast of Maine, the poor animals are left on their own, but they soon win over the wary townspeople with their kind, courageous ways.

So well do the critters blend in that when the greedy circus owner returns to claim them, villagers of all species conspire to outsmart the bloated blowhard.

With buoyant rhymes and brilliantly caricatured illustrations evoking the early nineteenth century, Chris Van Dusen presents a hugely entertaining tale about the bonds of community – and a hidden-pictures spread for eagle-eyed readers of all ages.

Why picture books?

Picture books cover a diverse range of topics, expose children to words and language they might not hear normally in conversation, and teach children how reading works (left to right, top to bottom). While picture books might be too hard for early readers to read by themselves at first, the books are not too hard to understand. Reading picture books with your child will inspire them to learn to read on their own, and experience the pleasure of reading.
