Description

Fans of Big Fish, Peter Pan, and Roald Dahl will fall in love with Circus Mirandus, which celebrates the power of seeing magic in world.

Do you believe in magic?
Micah Tuttle does.

Even though his awful Great-Aunt Gertrudis doesn’t approve, Micah believes in the stories his dying Grandpa Ephraim tells him of the magical Circus Mirandus: the invisible tiger guarding the gates, the beautiful flying birdwoman, and the magician more powerful than any other—the Man Who Bends Light. Finally, Grandpa Ephraim offers proof. The Circus is real. And the Lightbender owes Ephraim a miracle. With his friend Jenny Mendoza in tow, Micah sets out to find the Circus and the man he believes will save his grandfather.

The only problem is, the Lightbender doesn't want to keep his promise. And now it's up to Micah to get the miracle he came for.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 20, 2015 – Knot-tying fifth grader Micah Tuttle has grown up on his grandfather's stories of the magical Circus Mirandus, but when Grandpa Ephraim gets sick, the parentless Micah learns just how much power there can be in illusion. Beasley's debut is a bit of its own three-ring circus, masterfully diverting readers' attention among the pressing matter of Ephraim's illness, the inventive descriptions of Circus Mirandus in Ephraim's flashbacks and Micah's visits, and the larger, more serious tragedy of those who refuse to believe. As Micah and his fact-loving friend, Jenny, search for a miracle to save his grandfather, the Lightbender and the rest of the acts at the circus fight "to keep enchantment alive in the world" while protecting children from the darker side of magic. From the seemingly small magic of Micah's knot tricks to the life-changing illusions created by the Lightbender, readers will be left with the reminder that "just because a magic is small doesn't mean it is unimportant" and the hope, reminiscent of Peter Pan, that those who still believe will always have magic in their lives. Ages 9 12.

I have read this book many times, over and over again, and by far, out of all the books I have ever read, this is 100% my favorite!! Please make a book 2 or something similar soon, maybe about Jenny or another boy that meets Micah. This book was totally worth it!! Thanks for writing it!! ❤️❤️
