Publisher Comments:

In their trademark style, author Kate Klise and illustrator M. Sarah Klise blend a story bursting with jokes, puns, and wordplay with illustrations, signs, letters, recipes, and bold graphics to introduce Three-Ring Rascals.

When Sir Sidney, a kindly old circus owner, becomes too tired to travel with his show, he places a Help Wanted ad in the newspaper. Enter Barnabas Brambles: "I have a degree in lion taming from the University of Piccadilly Circus." But does Leo the lion need taming? Will Elsa the elephant still get her gourmet peanuts? And what will Brambles say when he discovers Bert and Gert--two mice who travel with the circus on popcorn cleanup patrol?

Brambles has big plans: More cities! More shows! No more free popcorn. Soon he's made a big mess of Sir Sidney's Circus, but Leo, Elsa, Bert, Gert, and the rest of the performers agree: The Show Must Go On!

Black and white line drawings throughout.

Review:

"Elderly Sir Sidney loves his circus, and he pampers his animals and performers, as well as the two mice and crow who are part of its extended family. When he decides to take some time off, he hires brash Barnabas Brambles, who promises to care for the circus with the same doting attention as Sir Sidney. As soon as the kindhearted owner leaves, though, Barnabas reveals his true plans, and they do not involve any doting; the top of his to-do list reads, 'Make $$$ for me.' With a terrible meanie in charge (Barnabas intends to increase the number of shows, charge more, and sell beloved animals), things look grim, but the circus folk hold onto their humor in this sweetly nutty kickoff to the Klise sisters' Three Ring Rascals series. Cartoon spot illustrations play up the comical mood — mice Bert and Gert deploy quips left and right, and the circus train spends a great deal of time atop the St. Louis Arch — in this free-spirited story that concludes with a lesson in kindness and a promise of more fun to come.

Three and a half stars. Very quick read with great illustrations that draw one into the story. A great mean baddie who learns his lesson. Wild adventures on a circus train and a lovely reunion and all is well. I look forward to more from this series. I think they will be loved by kids. Algonquin keeps it high editorial quality as it moves into children's books. I'm delighted to see this new expansion and wish them well. Thank you to NetGalley for offering me a chance to read this new title.
