TEN RING CIRCUS BOOKS

A long container-cover printed with circus scenes opens to disclose ten small books, each fitted into a slot. Each book gives some side of circus life, in realistic stories about circus performers, the juggler, the ringmaster, the zeal, the lion, the pony -- and so on, down to the last one when a little girl lost finds she has lots of new friends. The stories are friendly little, might-be-true stories, not particularly original, but in the overall, average tale telling. The pictures and the color work are second rate- and the general impression that of department store merchandise. The tiny books are somewhat sturdier than at first sight- much better book-making than the Rand McNally Tom Thumb Books (see below). A gadget which offers a lot for a little.
