Step right up and see the dazzling displays and sensational sights of the circus parade, from the golden calliope wagon at the front to the proud pachyderms bringing up the rear. These two-page scenes are full of lush detail from Hilary Knight, beloved illustrator of Kay Thompson's Eloise books. He populates his circus with strikingly beautiful acrobats, animal handlers, and other performers representing lands all over the world, making this book for youngsters up to 6 enjoyable for grownups as well. First published in 1978 and unavailable for decades, it has been reprinted from the original art and includes a new salute to South America.
