“Good thing we got here early!” Danny said to his father. The line to buy tickets was long. It stretched all the way around the big tent.
Danny felt the thrill of the circus all around him.
“Have you seen it?” asked a boy behind Danny in the line.
The boy pointed to Danny’s sweatshirt. Danny’s dad had bought it for him the last time they went to the circus. It was his favorite sweatshirt. It had a big picture of Thor, the famous circus tiger, on it.
“A bunch of times,” said Danny. “Haven’t you?”
The boy reached for his dad’s hand. He looked down. He shook his head no.
Right away, Danny was sorry he’d said it like that. The boy’s clothes were kind of old looking. There was a hole in one of the elbows of his sweatshirt. His sneakers were almost worn through. Maybe this is the first time his family had enough money for the circus, Danny thought.
“What’s your name?” Danny asked him.
“Vincent,” said the boy, smiling again.
“Oh, boy, Vincent. Get ready for the best night of your life!” said Danny.
Vincent hopped up and down.
“How about if I tell you a thing or two about the circus? Then you will know what to expect,” said Danny in a big-brother kind of way.
The smile on Vincent’s face got even bigger.
“Tell me,” said Vincent. “Tell me everything!”
“Okay,” said Danny. “The circus has every cool thing you can think of. First you smell the popcorn. Then the big band starts to play. The ringmaster comes out in his shiny red coat and top hat. In a loud voice he says, ‘Welcome, ladies and gentlemen and children of all ages...’”
