Tired of their ordinary life, a group of fleas have the spectacular idea to form a circus.  They want it to be magical, full of color, and to allow them travel the world. The public is invited, the tent is packed, and everyone is entertained by the acrobats, clowns, strong man, jugglers, trapeze artists, tightrope walkers, bearded fleas, and cannonball flea. Carretero’s text is accessible to young children who will be equally delighted by her colorful cartoon-style illustrations. Highly recommended.
