CLOWNS by Douglas Newton


Email this review


Brief histories of great clowns interspersed with a variety of information on the traditions, the dangers and the whys and wherefores of clowning are skillfully narrated here with an explanation of the distinguishing characteristics of white face, Augustes and acrobatic types. Primarily a book to read for pleasure, the treatment is certainly more for children on an upper elementary level than for the sandbox and alphabet set.
