Synopsis

Circus - Rainie and Friends by Kungchinchin

A circus is like a big family on an adventure, travelling from town to town to bring people unforgettable laughter and thrills. Among the animal performers and clowns that make up the Jumbow Circus family are its most famous stars: the spitfire Pig Bros, the trapeze-artist monkeys, the tightrope-walking elephant, the racing giraffe, and the acrobat goose. Night after night, their exciting acts stun everyone in the tent. Unfortunately, one day a fire breaks out during a performance and the panic-stricken crowd stampedes out of the burning tent. The performers are scattered, and the circus is finished. But after a while, the people of the town begin to miss the circus, and Rainie and her friends attempt to bring the missing performers together again. Along the way, she realises that distrust and repression swirl beneath the surface of each of the animals. Can Rainie unlock their hearts and make them a family once more?

About the Author

Kungchinchin is an illustrator whose talents span the worlds of both art and design. Founder of Double Rice Work Company Limited and currently a lecturer in Illustrations and Comics at CUSCS, she in her private life indulges in a passion for writing, cooking, music and philosophy. Her other great passion - for painting - was sparked off at age of five when she received a set of watercolour pencils from her father. Through hands-on experience, she soon came to realise the intriguing possibilities of such technical matters as wet blending, colour mixing and colour gradation, leading her to widen her creative scope to oil, acrylic, watercolour, pastel painting, ceramics, and digital art. Her debut picture book Another Rainy Day was published by Asia One earlier in 2014
