Reviews

Circus Mirandus is a New York Times Book Review EDITOR'S CHOICE!

"A beguiling first novel"--Gregory Maguire, author of Egg and Spoon, in the New York Times "Manifestations of belief and unbelief run through Cassie Beasley's charming debut, which takes readers to a marvelous place."--The Wall Street Journal "You'll love the chance to believe in magic again."--Redbook "Totally immersive (and plans for a movie version are in the works!)."--Good Housekeeping "Cassie Beasley's story will enthrall older kids."--Parents Magazine

* "The book is a fantastical circus romp...a delicious confection and much more: it shows that the human heart is delicate, that it matters, and that it must be handled with care."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review * "This gripping fantasy tale will have readers hooked from the opening scene to the breathtaking--and unexpected--conclusion."--School Library Journal, starred review * "Readers will be left with the reminder that "just because a magic is small doesn't mean it is unimportant" and the hope, reminiscent of Peter Pan, that those who still believe will always have magic in their lives."--Publishers Weekly, starred review "Circus Mirandus is an engag-ing, innovative tale that balances fantastical goings-on with an exploration of love, loss, friendship and the value of being open to the unexplainable."--BookPage "Some books take readers to different places or let us experience fantastical lands, but Circus Mirandus brings the magic to our world." --Scholastic Instructor, "50 Best Books for Summer" "Beasley elegantly fits together her story's many pieces, crafting a tale where magic is not an illusion but something we can all find....A+."--Cleveland Plain Dealer

"If you enjoy the magical tales of Roald Dahl, you will love this story about Micah Tuttle's search for a powerful magician named the Lightbender, who owes his dying grandfather a miracle."--Kiki Magazine, Summer Book Club Pick

"The tender relationship between grandfather and grandson is delicately drawn, and the family backstory, with its ties to a dark episode in the millennia-old history of Circus Mirandus, is intriguing...At the core of Beasley's debut novel is the theme of eternal life explored in Babbitt's Tuck Everlasting."--BCCB "Debut author Beasley has built an imaginative world in evocative, painterly prose, particularly the circus, and she's filled it with compellingly multifaceted characters."--Booklist "Studded with descriptions that make people and props alike come alive, this story will make readers wish so very badly that a circus, complete with gorilla balloons and mysterious bird ladies, will pop up one day in town and only accept those who truly believe in magic."--VOYA
