Synopsis

Circus Skills by Steve Rickard, Anita Loughrey

Learn about life in the circus, past and present, and why circus skills are more popular than ever. Find out which skills people are learning today. Check out the dangerous acts, like fire-eating, sword-swallowing and tightrope tricks. Read how one person was even crazy enough to cook breakfast on a high-wire above the Niagara Falls. Then read the story 'You're a Natural', and find out how Sam finally achieves her circus dream. Glitz! Glamour! Drama! Delve into the fantastic world of the performing arts with this book from the Starstruck series. A non-fiction section is followed by a fiction story on the same topic. Filled with striking photographs and illustrations, this book is ideal for any child who has an interest in an aspect of the world behind the stage curtain.

Reviews

Circus Skills was interesting and now I can juggle! The plot was good and it wasn't like any other book I had read, and it had a funny ending. It was interesting and you learnt things as well as the story. Ewen Munro, Drummond Community High This book is minted - it's good because it encourages you not to give up but to keep practicing and trying to do the skills. It shows you stuff that you can do, and then what to do next. Precious James-Miene, Castlebrae Community High
