KIRKUS REVIEW

An illustrator distinguished by her elegant composition, sophisticated bright color, and simplified forms surveys some of the big top's most compelling visual images: elephants, a spotlit ringmaster, trapeze artists, animal tamers, clowns, etc. For collections that must choose, Ehlert's vibrant stylizations (Circus, p. 322) are more innovative and arresting; but Goennel's more realistic representation is pleasant, and makes a good introduction to a favorite experience.
