I don't really like clowns; but if you can get over your clown phobia long enough to give this wordless tale a chance, it will win your heart. When a baby clown falls off the back of a circus train, a farmer takes him in and they teach each other the tricks of their trades until the train rolls through again, reuniting the tot with his clown momma.

Description


Whimsical and touching images tell the story of an unexpected friendship and the revelations it inspires in this moving, wordless picture book from two-time Caldecott Honor medalist Marla Frazee.

A baby clown is separated from his family when he accidentally bounces off their circus train and lands in a lonely farmer's vast, empty field. The farmer reluctantly rescues the little clown, and over the course of one day together, the two of them make some surprising discoveries about themselves--and about life

Sweet, funny, and moving, this wordless picture book from a master of the form and the creator of The Boss Baby speaks volumes and will delight story lovers of all ages.
