The Lovereading4Kids comment
Roll Up! Roll Up! Award winning Quentin Blake brings to life juggling, conjuring, fire-eating and much, much more in his soft hue illustrations to John Yeoman’s mellifluous words. Together they portray the varied and talented members of the performing Foskett’s Family all of whom are a delight.
The Fabulous Foskett Family Circus by John Yeoman, Quentin Blake
Roll up, roll up for the Fabulous Foskett Family Circus! There are Milly and Willy who perform with young Fred, who does a back flip and lands on his head. Uncle Phoenix Foskett who blows smoke rings, Jess and Bess with their conjuring tricks, not to mention singing dogs and birds and performing parrots. And at the end of all that excitement it is time for a well earned rest.
Take a ringside seat for this glorious romp of a book from a master picture book illustrator in top gear!
Quentin Blake originally created the images of the eccentric and multi-talented Foskett
family to decorate a hospital ward. They are combined here with a specially commissioned text by John Yeoman to create a glorious book, which will be enjoyed and treasured by book lovers of all ages.
