View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Has being late to work due to dancing clowns ever been a problem for you? Have you ever had to defend yourself against a giant iguana? Does the overture to The Music Man make you violently twitch? In Life is a Circus Run by a Platypus readers are immersed into what it would be like to live every day as if a herd of ballerinas were chasing you, without the inconvenience of actually having to run.  This collection of truly bizarre short stories taken from the author, Allison Hawn’s, life takes one across the world and into the strangest crevices of civilization. The lessons learned through her adventures might very well save the reader if they too ever have to face birthing a cow, calming distraught technical support or death by furniture.

About the Author:

Allison Hawn was born in Idaho and has spent her life obtaining adventures. The daughter of a musician, she was brought up all over the United States with occasional dalliances into foreign lands. She holds a degree in psychology from Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho, where she also had a weekly humor column with a small time newspaper "The Crusader." "Life is a Circus Run by a Platypus" is her first creative published work. Her second book, "Life is a Pirate Ship Run by a Velociraptor" is due to be released through Sweatshoppe Publications later this year. She currently resides in Spokane, Washington, where she works with the homeless, domestic violence victims, and other disenfranchised populations, but calls a myriad of locations home.


"I recommend this book for anyone who needs a reminder of life's little oddities and simply needs a good laugh." - Tania Staley Readers' Favorite

"Now, I am typically not one to give out good ratings. However, I really liked her book and think that she has the talent to write successfully and actually have an audience. I rate her book 4 out of 4 stars... She is realistic and raw, and that makes all the difference." - Sarah Papesh Online Book Club
