9780060296551: Circus Caps for Sale

The peddler wakes up bright and early, ready to begin his day and sell some caps. But everyone in town is missing. Where could they be? Then he realizes they must be at the county fair, and he rushes off to sell his caps to the crowd. Instead of selling, though, he finds himself caught in the middle of a circus on parade. And before he knows it, he and his caps are one of the star acts!

Esphyr Slobodkina's classic artwork and timeless story are as endearing as ever in this new, refreshed edition. Come to the circus, one and all -- but don't forget those caps are for sale!

Review:

For many, the words "Caps for sale!" will elicit an old, happy memory of the favorite childhood story about a peddler who stacks caps on top of his head--until a band of monkeys gets in on the action. So they will be thrilled to spend a day at the circus with the same affable salesman in Esphyr Slobodkina's refreshed edition of the sequel to Caps for Sale. When the dapper peddler finds himself at a circus one day, he seizes the opportunity to hawk his wares. Unfortunately, a mischievous passing elephant seems to be his most interested customer. Soon caps are flying, to the delight of clowns, jugglers, tumblers, and especially the watching crowd. The story of how the peddler manages to reclaim--and then sell--all his caps, will charm the hat off any reader. We're glad a whole new generation of children can now experience Slobodkina's familiar, old-fashioned illustrations as well as the humorous, preposterous plot. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
