Gr 2–5—When Piper Morgan's mom takes a temporary job with the Big Top Circus, Piper gets the chance to join the Little Explorers, a group of circus workers' kids who help with the elephants and act in the show. After Piper forgets her dance steps and upends the whole team, everyone is mad at her. Piper is sure her mom will get fired. But with the help of Miss Sarah, Big Top Bubba, and her newest friend Lexie, Piper saves the show, earns the camaraderie of the rest of the Little Explorers, and gets a round of applause from the audience. In her own voice, seven-year-old Piper shares her challenges and successes with readers. The closing chapter sets the scene for a future installment. VERDICT While the tone and themes are a bit trite, energetic illustrations and informative "Fairground Fun Facts" between short chapters make this a choice for newly independent readers.—Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampa --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
About the Author
Stephanie Faris knew she wanted to be an author from a very young age. In fact, her mother often told her to stop reading so much and go outside and play with the other kids. After graduating from Middle Tennessee State University she somehow found herself working in information technology. But she never stopped writing. When she isn’t crafting fiction, Stephanie is indulging her gadget geek side by writing for online technology sites. Her work is regularly featured on the small business blogs for Intuit and Go Payment and she is a featured columnist for SmallBizTechnology.com. She lives in Nashville with her husband.
Top Customer Reviews
Seeing Piper mess up isn't the best of things, but viewing her attempts to get back on track and make things right with others is heart-warming and will make readers cheer for her. The illustrations are cute and there are interesting circus facts at chapter endings.
This is highly recommended for parents, elementary school librarians, and primary school teachers.
