“Remember, sometimes the best way to see someone again is not to say good-bye.”
We all have those fond memories of the Carnival. Where you begged and pleaded for your parents to take you. And when you finally get there, the air felt different. Like maybe you were in a different world. But in the end, we all had that same feeling, as if that place held all the answers to the universe and we all left with a little magic in our hearts. This is what that book reminded me of. All those fond memories from the past that you hold so dear to your heart.
It took some time for me to actually get into this one. And It kind of dragged for me until the hall of mirrors. After you are introduced to that clever trick, that is when the story fully develops.
The brother and sister combo is really sweet and you cheer them on as they go on one wacky adventure at the carnival. We all should feel envious but not that much as we see what they endure.
As I was reading this, I kept thinking about all the people who I’m going to recommend this to at work. It had a lot of strong vocabulary building words. I know parents will love that not only are their kids reading but they are learning new words that they haven’t been introduced to yet.
Having an imagination kind of disappears as you grow older but this will bring it right back into your world. Just remember to Touch The Sky!!!
