Circus Mirandus

Micah Tuttle’s grandpa Ephraim has always told him wonderful stories about Circus Mirandus, a magical circus he visited when he was a boy. But now Grandpa Ephraim is dying, and ter­rible, grouchy Great-Aunt Gertrudis has arrived to take care of Micah. All the magic of Micah’s childhood seems lost until Grandpa Ephraim finally tells him the truth: Circus Mirandus is real, and the Lightbender, the circus’s greatest magician, owes Grandpa Ephraim a miracle. With his friend Jenny in tow, Micah sets out to find the mysterious circus.

Cassie Beasley’s debut novel brims with hu­mor, heart, and a cast of characters you won’t soon forget. At once classic and fresh, Circus Mirandus will remind readers of the magic of storytelling.
