Read for a review journal and it was cute. Not my usual reading, but can see it appealing to an elementary crowd that appreciates talking animals and humor. ( )

This is book two in the Three Ring Rascals series and it is delightful. When Polly Pumpkinseed announces that she will be awarding a trophy to the greatest star in the circus, all the performers both large and small are excited. Sir Sidney, the circus owner begins to worry. How can only one performer in his great show be the best? His worry, causes a worrywart that sends him home to his peanut farm in Georgia. But the circus must go on with their tour. At each stop, one of the circus acts lets their desire to be the best overtake their better nature. The acting circus director is guided into good actions when he reads the book, mice Gert and Bert, have written for him. All of this is illustrated with the wonderful drawings that add so much to the story. Eventually, the lesson is learned, the greatest circus act is 'us'. Another excellent addition to the works of Kate and M. Sarah Klise. Elementary level. Could be used as a read aloud and tied into guidance and circus curriculum . A bit of math, word play and some geography! Reviewed from NetGalley. ( )
