The Lovereading4Kids comment
A charming and hilarious rhyming picture book about a young misfit puffin who learns that it's not just okay to be different but that it's also possible to overcome his fears too. The story is brought to life with colourful, characterful illustrations by Gabby Grant.

Lewis Clowns Around by Lynne Rickards
Poor Lewis hates being a puffin. His brother Harris is great at catching fish, flying and doing puffin things, but Lewis just doesn't fit in. He longs for a different life, far away from the crashing waves and tall cliffs of the Firth of Forth. But what else can a puffin do? Then, 'Eureka!' Lewis finds the answer, and heads off to the circus to become a clown. He meets many incredible creatures: Carla Koala, Zorro the Highwire Cat, the Flying Blue Monkeys and Daredevil Pat. But when his act goes terribly wrong, can Lewis overcome his fears, find some confidence and save the day?
'Fantastic rhyming text that really draws children into the story.'
... The illustrations are colourful and fun... -- Angela Lepper, School Librarian
