The book, "Three-Ring Rascals: The Circus Goes to Sea," by Kate Klise (Algonquin Young Readers) is great. It's a book for both boys and girls because it has adventure and romance. In the end of the story it has a titanic twist to it.

This book is fictional and the animals in the circus can talk. And it's really interesting what they have to say, but we won't tell you. You have to read it yourself.

This book would also make a great gift. If you like picture books this is the book for you. It has a drawing on every page. We loved the pictures because even though they were drawn fast, they still showed what was happening at each moment and every character's facial expression. We know you will love this book as much as we do.
