Mirabelle and Meg are identical twins. They look just alike but are very different inside. As they are in a circus family, these differences become obvious. Mirabelle is the physically brave one. She has no fear, and her professional acrobat parents are amazed at her feats of daring do. Meg, on the other hand, is the noisy one. She talks all the time, and has no interest in being an acrobat. This becomes apparent when her parents try to train her, and realise she is terrified of heights. This makes Meg sad, and she retreats to the caravan and won’t come out. But after Mirabelle’s remarkable grand debut, when she is being interviewed by one and all, it is she who is terrified and can’t speak: ‘Mirabelle’s legs wobbled like jellyfish. Her hands shook like earthquakes….’ Meg, the fearless talker, saves the day. She will be the one at the circus who introduces Mirabelle and does all the talking. The illustrator of this smashing picture book says her pictures are ‘retro modern with a cute twist’ and so they are. Full of the brightness and fun of the circus, they will be enjoyed by parents and children alike.
