Here is all the awe and wonder of the circus showground, with the Penguin family showing their prowess in all the traditional circus acts. Practising and perfecting their skills is a daily part of life, even meal times involve some acrobatics. Little Poppy performs daily, travelling around the country, but she knows, deep down, that performing is not her passion. She doesn’t like all the loud noises, the bright lights, the crowded places. How can she tell her Mum she doesn’t want to perform any more? Wisely, Mum gives her some space, some peace and quiet, and it is not long before Poppy begins to realise that in fact there is much she misses from circus life. Light bulb moment….Poppy has a brilliant idea that she could help to run the show, rather than perform. So many areas need expertise; health and safety, auditions, equipment, costumes. During performances, Poppy feels calm and in control as she peeps through the curtains and watches the greatest show on earth. With her parents bursting with pride, she has found her niche. Illustrated in soft pastel watercolours and well-spaced text to balance the acrobatic performers, this tale will cause readers to think about balancing their own life skills and finding their place in life.
