KIRKUS REVIEW

Little girl first-time-out-by-herself adventures recounted with a big-eyed awe that touches more on propriety than thrills. Eight-year-old Sally is told she may take the bus and meet her father for the afternoon circus performance. Smart as she is, she has no trouble getting there, but then in a welter of buying popcorn and candy, stepping into a side show and meeting a friendly clown who later helps her find the ticket she inevitably loses, she meets her Daddy in time. But things like the concern with ""alone"", or deciding to take home a picture of the Fat Lady so mother will stay thin, add up to a stilted, cloying little book not worth even its low price.
