Once Upon A Bookshelf

Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Listed: The Circus

I’m in the middle of Catherine Webb’s The Dream Thief and I love love love LOVE it. Mainly because the Horatio Lyle books are awesome. But I’ll be raving more about that in a couple of days when I’m actually finished the book. ANYWAY, it has to do with a CIRCUS. And these kids who are disappearing. And the people at the circus who are all stretched weird and such. And things that explode like woah because he’s Horatio and keeps explody things in his trench coat. HUZZAH!
