About this Book

The ever-imaginative little character, Simon, dreams of being the ringmaster of a circus. In a cardboard box he creates a circus with his animal friends, but his efforts to stage the show are frustrated. When he acts as lion tamer to a paper lion, a goat tries to eat the star attraction. When he tries to walk a tightrope, he is foiled by a flock of tame birds.

As usual his sensible friend, Marlene, comes to the rescue. Her common-sense advice saves the day and Simon creates a circus that will never be forgotten.
