"Entertaining . . . Most children will agree the book is '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 "Beginning chapter-book readers will thoroughly enjoy this fun and fast-paced title, which has lessons in kindness along the way." --School Library Journal "The Klises maintain a light touch with the messaging, giving the book a comforting thematic unity around the importance of kindness; and 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 Magazine
