Author/Illustrator: Chris Van Dusenanimals
Best for kids: who love animals and good books

On the dust jacket: When a circus ship runs aground off the coast of Maine, the circus animals must stagger to the shore of a small island. At first the townspeople view them with suspicion, but it’s not long before locals and animals are sharing the island in harmony. 

Candy House Review: This is our new favorite book. My little family and I were captivated by the interactive illustrations, the easy rhymes and the unique story. If you and your kids don’t love this book, I’m stumped.
