Harold's Circus

Written by Crockett Johnson

Reviewed by Joshua W. (age 8)

Harold goes on a trip. He makes a circus, and he makes animals. He makes a tightrope and he falls off and makes an elephant to save him. He jumps on to a horse and next he jumps threw the air when he jumps off the horse. Harold made a lion, and he put his head in the lion's mouth. Read to figure out what happens next.

It made me feel like I was in the book. I wonder what happened in the next book. My favorite part is when Harold jumps off the horse finally and embarrassingly. There were illustrators. They were purple, white and skin color. There weren't many things in the pictures. It only showed a moon if it was night, if it was day it showed the sun.

I recommend this book to first grade, kindergarten and second grade.
