I felt like this mesmerizing magical tale actually delivered what so many other books only promise to do. Micah has grown up on his grandfather’s stories of childhood encounters with the magical Circus Mirandus. Now that Grandpa Ephraim is gravely ill, Micah decides that finding the enchanted circus is the only way to save his grandfather. I loved how threads of Grandpa Ephraim’s history were woven in and brought depth to Micah’s experiences. I highly recommend this wonderfully rich story to older children, teens and adults. It would be a great family read-aloud or audio for a car trip.
