With stunning artwork and a rhyming text, the illustrator of the Mercy Watson books tells a tale of human-animal connection full of humor and heart.When a circus ship runs aground off the coast of Maine, the poor animals are left on their own to swim the chilly waters. Staggering onto a nearby island, they soon win over the wary townspeople with their kind, courageous ways. So well do the critters blend in that when the greedy circus owner returns to claim them, villagers of all species conspire to outsmart the bloated blowhard. With buoyant rhymes and brilliantly caricatured illustrations evoking the early nineteenth century, Chris Van Dusen presents a hugely entertaining tale about the bonds of community — and a rare hidden-pictures spread for eagle-eyed readers of all ages.Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 9/22/2009Pages: 40Reading Level: Age 4 and Up
This 52 piece circus themed set comes with wooden railway is perfect for children ages 3-8 . ABOUT JANOD In 1970, Louis Janod founded the company Janod in Orgelet, France. With his associate Serge Salvi, he developed the business and focused on the design and sale of traditional toys (spinning tops, yo-yos, skittles, etc.). Developing creativity to craft timeless toys, valuing contemporary design with a graphic edge, inventing new features... these are all challenges Janod takes on when creating its new collections. Janod's playful, sturdy and joyous creations forge unique connections between children and their toys... as well as between the brand and its consumers. The not so easily defined soulful component drives our designers and the "French Touch" disregards borders and has enabled us to hold a special place in toy chests around the world! Recommended Ages:3 – 8
