The Circus Is Coming, by Hilary Knight was originally published in 1978. Nearly thirty years later it was reissued and included a new spread. This picture book is as fresh as if it had rolled off the artist's brush yesterday. The Circus contains all the elements one would expect from a Hilary Knight production: outstanding drawing, inventiveness, amazing color, adorable animals, exotic people, beautiful design, and a host of children following devotedly. In short, the same things one would expect from the circus itself. I highly recommend you buy your ticket before the show moves on.
