All Mr. Brown wants is a nice cup of tea and a peaceful evening with his cat on his knee. He’s too old for love and adventure. Or so he thinks.
This morning when Harold Brown woke up, it seemed like a normal day. Why would a 50-year old man feel anything about a circus coming to the quiet town of Limberlost? But BonBon Circus has brought a Bengal tiger, and Harold’s never seen a tiger before. When he decides to disrupt his routine to visit the circus, it sets in motion a few other changes, all leading up to one thrilling day. Will Mr. Brown’s life ever be the same again?
This is a great story! It is about a quiet, 55 year old man name Harold Brown who works for the newspaper. He is very introverted, and hardly speaks to anyone. He sticks to a routine, and becomes concerned when things don’t go according to plan. Then the circus comes to town, and everything changes for Harold. The story is really cute, and I loved the writing style. It had a very nostalgic feel for me, and although you may not have befriended a band of gypsies when you were nine, I think that you will find this story relate-able. I wish this book were longer! I would love to see this turned into a full length novel. I look forward to more from this author.
Were you obsessed with the circus when you were younger?
