Circus Berzerkus by Jonathan Harlen

Book Description

This title is intended for ages 8 to 12 years. In the spirit of the imaginative works of Roald Dahl, Andy Griffiths, and Paul Jennings, this inventive work will excite young readers with an offbeat, hilarious take on a world of circuses and ghosts. This spirited tale follows child circus performer, Marvin Gumbo as he attempts to save his family's circus from ruin at the hands of Dancing Dan, a charismatic lion tamer. Along the way, Marvin befriends an incredible cast of characters, including Chubby Cupcakes, a fat lady who operates her own forklift; the Great Zambini, the circus's strong man who happens to glow in the dark; and Rajah, the ghost of a dead elephant who playfully narrates Marvin's adventures.
