Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2 Wiseman is back with another humorous Morris (the moose) and Boris (the bear) book. Emerging readers will laugh heartily, delighted with their inside knowledge that Morris is misunderstanding both language (taking it too literally) and the roles of the circus performers. With the ringmaster's permission, Morris makes unsuccessful attempts at bareback ("Bear-back") riding, animal training, acrobatics, etc. However, Morris does well as a "Funny Clown," when he is chased by Boris across seven wordless pages. The cartoon illustrations with bold colors provide ample context clues for beginning readers. This delightful combination of text and illustrations will entice children to read and re-read this book. Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, Idaho

My son could not stop laughing when I first read him this book, and he requested it many times after that. Morris (the moose) can never quite get things right, and Boris (the bear) becomes quite exasperated trying to correct him. By the end of the book, Boris is pursuing Morris all over the circus tent, much to the delight of the crowd - and the reader.
This is probably the best of the "Morris and Boris" series - it gives kids an introduction to the humor of word play and just plain silliness.

Format: Paperback
The Morris and Boris books are another set I was introduced to by my husband and his family. I personally don't enjoy them as much as either the Frog and Toad series by Arnold Lobel or the George and Martha series by James Marshall. Morris and Boris's friendship doesn't make any sense in this book. They never seem to like each other and they are always arguing.

In Morris and Boris at the Circus, Morris decides to join the circus. Before the Ringmaster will hire him he has to prove himself during a show. Boris tries to help Morris do a variety of things (acrobat, lion tamer, performing dog, etc.) and he fails horribly at each task. Part of Morris's problem is he's an idiot and a lot of story is wasted on Boris having to explain things to Morris repeatedly. Morris does finally succeed at the expense of Boris. You can probably guess how.

A wonderful vehicle to enjoyment, knowledge and the fact that words are nether literal or with a single meaning. Learning far more than just about the circus. A story that might allow for many brief discussions on the many concepts.

My son has a little more difficulty reading this book, however he frequently ask read it as it is about the circus. Nice pictures just takes more time to finish.
