Circus Fantastico: A Magnifying Mystery


Circus Fantastico: A Magnifying Mystery
by Lynn Gordon
Accord Publishing, 2010. Picture Book.

There is a mystery going on at Circus Fantastico. Many of the show's props  have turned up missing. Ella the Elephant (and star of the circus) is put in charge of solving the mystery of the disappearing items. Young readers can follow along with the magnifying glass provided and check out all the evidence along with Ella. Tiny clues are hidden throughout the colorful pages--illustrations so minuscule that they can barely be seen with the human eye. But with the magnifying glass in hand--all will be revealed. Children will love hunting around each page trying to find the itty bitty pictures hidden there. As always, Molly Idle's lovely, colorful pictures are a joy to behold.
