Staff Reviews

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.

— From Melissa's Picks


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.
