At The Circus (Penelope Henry Book 2)
Penelope's world turns upside-down with the arrival of the circus in her normally quiet village of Green Oaks. Just in case that's not exciting enough, it's also her ninth birthday! When a monkey escapes from the circus and gets into a tangle with one of Penelope's friends, the circus owner invites them all to see the show-for free. All of Penelope's dreams come true when she is chosen to participate in one of the circus's most exciting acts. But trouble strikes when the lions get out of their enclosure and the elephant trainer mysteriously goes missing, threatening the entire circus. Will the show be able to go on? With the help of Dinty the leprechaun, Penelope and her new friends are sure to have their hands full.
