The Showman's Girl

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


At ten in the morning, on the first of May, 1932, the circus on the common was just coming to life. In the roped-off paddocks, horses snorted in the morning sun. In makeshift runs beside ornately carved and painted caravans, doves and chickens cooed and clucked. From nearby tents, more exotic animal noises carried on the air: the low, raspy yawn of a lion, and the trumpet of an elephant’s reply.

Thirteen-year-old Emily Brooke had come to know the sounds and animal smells of the circus well, and it’s sights, too: gleaming motor lorries and horse-drawn goods wagons, each emblazoned with the name of Strand’s Grand Circus; simmering, shimmering traction engines that provided electricity; the doll-like circus women, in their silk dressing gowns and headscarves, hanging tiny costumes on washing lines; the men in their vests, painting pieces of scenery or repairing props. 

This is Emily's story.
