September 2016 Debut of the Month How big a star you are has very little to do with your actual size, but a lot to do with how the world and your friends perceive you, says this circus caper. Samson is a big star in Fleabag’s Circus and no wonder, he can lift a match, a pea and even the lovely Amelie. But he heads off in search of the bigger time and though he does indeed get to perform in front of a huge audience, he realises the acclaim isn’t worth anything without his friends there to see him. Nathan Reed’s illustrations make the flea circus a bright and glamorous place and his fleas are truly believable heroes. A funny story with lots to enjoy and talk about. ~ Andrea Reece
