About The Author
Julia Dweck writes children's stories for digital and traditional publication. Her stories span the spectrum of humor, fantasy, and edutainment in rhyme and in prose. Julia's background in elementary education affords her the opportunity to be in touch with what children want to read about and what makes them giggle.

Circus Fun
Once a year, the cats in Marseille buy a ticket to visit Le Cat Circus Show. Hugo is the head cat and the three-ring show master.

All the circus performers are talented and creative cats. There are cat clowns, cat gymnasts, cat singers and cat jugglers. Each breed of cat has a special talent that is featured in the circus show. Some cute mice join in the fun and are shot out of a cannon onto a tiny trampoline.

At the end of the evening, Hugo bids all the cats farewell and they return to their homes with happy memories of their circus adventure.

My Thoughts
This is a delightful ebook that will entertain and educate young readers. Children will love the cat circus performers. The text is written in rhyme and the color illustrations are excellent. Cat lovers will be thrilled to see their favorite feline breeds performing daring circus acts and stunts.

I read this book on my Kindle Fire HD and was very pleased with the landscape orientation of this story. Each screen view looks like a 2-page layout with an illustration and four lines of text on each page.

This ebook is great fun for young readers and an excellent introduction to a circus performance. Highly recommended for all ages!
