Review: The Circus Goes to Sea
When Sir Sidney’s Circus is invited to go to sea aboard the SS Spaghetti, they decide to accept. When they arrive, they learn the whole crew of entertainers has been fired. When Captain LaPasta finds out what’s happened she’s upset and apologizes to her passengers. The circus comes to her rescue and soon everyone declares it the best cruise ever!
The Circus Goes to Sea is the third book in the Three-Ring Rascals series by Kate Klise and it is just delightful! The circus performers are up for a new adventure aboard ship and are excited to go on a cruise. Unfortunately Sir Sidney gets seasick and has to spend most of the cruise in his cabin. Not to worry, though – the rest of the performers work together and come up with ways to entertain the guests and save the cruise!
I thought this book was so much fun! I love the way the performers chip in to help and appreciate each other’s contributions. The book is just silly enough to capture early readers’ attention and M. Sarah Klise‘s illustrations do a lot to enhance the story. Each book in the Three-Ring Rascals series stands alone but once you read one, you’ll want to read them all. Pick up The Circus Goes to Sea for the early readers in your life!
