In their trademark style, author Kate Klise and illustrator M. Sarah Klise blend a story bursting with jokes, puns, and wordplay with illustrations, signs, letters, recipes, and bold graphics to introduce Three-Ring Rascals. When Sir Sidney, a kindly old circus owner, becomes too tired to travel with his show, he places a Help Wanted ad in the newspaper. Enter Barnabas Brambles: “I have a degree in lion taming from the University of Piccadilly Circus.” But does Leo the lion need taming? Will Elsa the elephant still get her gourmet peanuts? And what will Brambles say when he discovers Bert and Gert--two mice who travel with the circus on popcorn cleanup patrol? Brambles has big plans: More cities! More shows! No more free popcorn. Soon he’s made a big mess of Sir Sidney’s Circus, but Leo, Elsa, Bert, Gert, and the rest of the performers agree: The Show Must Go On! Black and white line drawings throughout.

From the Back Cover:

When Sir Sidney, a kindly old circus owner, becomes too tired to travel with his show, he puts an ad in the newspaper. Enter Barnabas Brambles: “I have a degree in lion taming from the University of Piccadilly Circus.” But does Leo the lion need taming? Will Elsa the elephant still get her gourmet peanuts? What will Brambles say when he discovers Bert and Gert, the two mice who travel with the circus on popcorn cleanup patrol? “There will be no vermin in my circus!” His circus?

Brambles has big plans: More cities! More shows! No more free popcorn. Soon he’s made a big mess of Sir Sidney’s Circus, but Leo, Elsa, Bert, Gert, and the rest of the performers agree: The Show Must Go On!

“Smafunderful (smart + fun + wonderful).” ―Kirkus Reviews

“A sweetly nutty kickoff to the Klise sisters’ Three-Ring Rascals series. Cartoon spot illustrations play up the comical mood . . . in this  free-spirited story that concludes with a lesson in kindness and  a promise of more fun to come.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Humor is apparent in every detail, from the smallest conversational exchanges to the extravagantly silly set pieces that mark the book’s  major plot points. Readers will eagerly await the next volume  of over-the-(big)-top hijinks.” ―The Horn Book
