Review: A fresh view of the famous American poet Emily Dickinson is portrayed in this delightfully creative tale of the excitement the circus brought to town in the mid-1800s. As the neighbor children are captivated by the stories told by their esteemed and honored Emily, a plot to sneak out in the middle of the night and watch the arrival of the circus becomes a reality. An accident/incident exposes this adventure, and the truth comes out. This could be a most fabulous read-aloud!
