The Lovereading4Kids comment
June 2015 Debut of the Month Micah has grown up with his grandfather Ephraim, and the two have had great fun together. Ephraim has always had time for Micah, talking to him and sharing stories from his own childhood of the mysterious Circus Mirandus where impossible things happen and your dreams come true. When Ephraim gets ill Micah decides to find the Circus and claim the miracle its owner promised. He’s accompanied there by his very practical friend Jenny. What follows is a story of love, friendship and the amazing power of faith. Micah and Jenny do find the circus and experience its wonders for themselves in scenes that will entrance readers. There’s real magic in this story, read it and you’ll see it all around you too. ~ Andrea Reece
