One of Newbery Medalist Sid Fleischman's most beloved books, this rip-snortin' saga of a young man and his butler bound for California during the great Gold Rush was just made to be read by a full cast. Our collection of coots, codgers, geezers, and outlaws will have you laughing out loud...when you're not holding your breath in suspense!

California History fun!

What did you like best about this story?

My students loved following along in their book's while listening to this story. I was able to cover the content on do the fun activities without talking 4 weeks to read it in class. We were running out of time at the end of the year and it worked out great.

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

What made the experience of listening to The Night Circus the most enjoyable?

I loved the story telling experience that the narrator gave. I love magic presented as a real possibility, not just fantacy.
