The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.
What did I think?
I loved the characters. Widget and Poppet were the adorable twins born the day the circus was opened. They brought a whimsical and charming aspect to the story. Meanwhile the love story between Celia and Marco was sweet and heartbreaking. Sometimes I had a difficult time understanding which character was which and that confusion frustrated me a little.
In the end I thought the book was really good.
