The Lovereading4Kids comment

A work of outstanding imagination, this is a fantastic adventure set in a time not too far in the future where things are almost the same as we know them but also just a little bit different. Garland Maddigan, the 12 year old daughter of the Fantasia Circus ring master, sets off on an unusual journey which takes her through the land of the Witch-Finder. A thrilling read.

Maddigan's Fantasia by Margaret Mahy

For three mysterious children have joined the Fantasia - children with uncanny abilities and a secret past. Soon, she finds herself embroiled in a series of terrifying adventures.
