Circus Mirandus by Cassie Beasley

His grandfather is dying and he doesn't want that to happen.  If it does, he'll be stuck with his crabby old great aunt.  There's nothing he can do to stop it though.  Or is there?

Dial Books and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 2nd, so be sure to make a note to pick it up then.

This book has magic in it.  There's the magic of an old man and his grandson who share life and love and have fun.  There's Circus Mirandus that doesn't stay in one place and offers extraordinary tours to those who have an imagination and believe in magic.  (Not everyone does, you know.)

Grandpa has a long forgotten wish that he received when he visited the circus as a child.  He sends a note to the Lightbender telling him he wants to collect his promise now.  But when he asks, he's told no.  So it's up to Micah to find the circus and change the Lightbender's mind.  Micah doesn't know the whole story, though...

This tale twists and ties and weaves itself into magic with a touch of other worldly power.  Micah makes a good friend while he tries to negotiate a deal for his grandfather.  His grandfather is a good, wise man, and he asks for the perfect wish.  It wasn't what Micah was expecting and it wasn't what I was expecting either.

One thing I know, if this circus ends up in town, I'm going to go visit.  I believe in magic...
