CIRCUS MIRANDUS 5/5 STARS 24/24
Have you ever heard of a magical circus? Well, let me tell you about the book Circus Mirandus.
Circus Mirandus is a book about a boy named Micah. His grandpa tells him about wonderful times he had at Circus Mirandus. Micah then sets out to find Circus Mirandus and give his grandpa a miracle that the circus had promised him. Anyways, I thought this book was AMAZING!
One thing I love about this book is the language. For example, “his own fury was burning him alive. When he stepped outside, the night air felt like a thousand points of ice against his skin.” On 69%. Can’t you just visualize that? Another thing I really liked was the organization. I didn’t think the book would transition well between Grandpa Ephraim’s and Micah’s stories, but it did.
This book was very interesting. When it said,” Grandpa Ephraim’s eyes were closed, his chest was heaving up and down, but he didn’t seem to be getting enough air.” On 81%, I couldn’t put the book down! The setting was also very realistic. On 67%,” he stepped between two big bushes with leaves as big as Big Jean’s ears and found a twinkling green pool.
Circus Mirandus 5 Stars 24/24 points
I give “Circus Mirandus”, a book by Cassie Beasley, 5 stars and 24/24 points.
In the book, Micah’s grandfather, Ephraim, is terribly sick. Micah’s aunt comes to take care of him, but is unkind to Micah. Ephraim’s condition becomes dire, and Micah is worried. He remembers the magical circus that his grandpa told him about and begins to search for it with high hopes that Ephraim’s old friend, the Light bender can save him. He is convinced that he can use the miracle that the Light bender promised Ephraim. It takes a while, but he finds the Light bender… only to discover that he cannot prevent Ephraim from dying. Micah consults his grandfather and discovers that he was not going to ask for his life continuation. He asked for Micah to join Circus Mirandus; and eventually, he gets his dying wish.
An example of good language and interest is shown on page 192: “In an explosion of silver feathers and sawdust…”
An example of developed characters is “He was tall with shaggy blond hair, and he wore a battered brown leather coat that swished against the stage.”
Circus Mirandus does not only have astounding language, interest, and characters, but also a magical story and plotline. The story made me wonder what would happen next and several times, I almost cried. This is why I give “Circus Mirandus” , by Cassie Beasley, 5 stars and 24/24 points
Circus Mirandus 5 stars 24/24
Have you ever thought that you would do anything to save your grandfather? Well in this book young Micah Tuttle goes through lots of danger to try to save his dear old grandpa Ephraim.
The setting in this book takes place in Circus Mirandus, the treehouse, and at home. This book flows with how they get to and from places. The part I disliked most was page 192 ,”It hit the floor in an explosion of silver feather and sawdust, and in half a second of silence that followed, the sound of its wings scrabbling against the ground as it died was enough to tear a hole in Mirandus Head’s heart.”
The characters in this book are all lifelike. It made me sad when Grandpa Ephraim died. In my opinion, Micah is very brave. I know this because when Geoffrey wouldn’t let him into Circus Mirandus he went and tied himself to a gorilla balloon. That showed bravery because he almost died trying to get help for his grandpa.
This book is about a boy named Micah going through trouble and even skipping school to save his grandpa’s life. His Grandpa Ephraim sends a note to a magician he met when he was a kid, asking and pleading for his miracle. All of this is on Micah’s mind and with his Great-aunt Gertrudis not letting him see Grandpa Ephraim, Micah is getting nervous by the second. Will the man who bends light give Grandpa Ephraim his miracle? Read this remarkable book to find out.
Circus Mirandus 5/5 stars 24/24
This book was amazing! It was interesting, descriptive, magical, and original. It also made me laugh, like on page 69, when the French vulture said “She eez going to be vairy not nice I am seeing. A steenky egg.” And it was true! Well not until page 233, when Victoria ( The Amazing Amazon Bird Woman, Ephraim’s old wife) told Gertie ( Gertrudus, Ephraim’s younger sister) that magic was fake, Ephraim lied about her being able to fly ( which she could, so she was the true liar) and when Gertie didn’t believe her, she climbed on the roof, and here are the exact words “ Ephraim came home just in time to see his sister leap. Victoria didn’t catch her. She didn’t even try.” Now that is horrible. Horrible person, horrible actions, horrible Victoria!It was a descriptive book too. Like when Ephraim went into the tent of The Man Who Bends Light, it said “The tent of The Man Who Bends Light was dim and warm when Ephraim entered.” On page 104 chapter 14. And of course it was magical. The characters were life-like, except some of them were magical. Like the Lightbender and Victoria. Of course it was original too. There is NOTHING like it. It’s definitely the first story I read about a magical circus. That is why I gave this book a five out of five stars, and a 24/24 review.
Thomas Reid Circus Murandus rating from rubric 21 2 stars
Circus Mirandus was not that good of a book . It was definitely not the best book but there were some good parts. Like when grandpa Epreigham had just got into Circus Mirandus and he fed the elephant that could do long division and drank dark blue fruit juice that made him sing opera for an hour. I do not like all that magic kind of stuff. The part when chintzy got her claws stuck in the sleeping bag was funny because jenny freaked out when she ate the peanut butter crackers. The organization was weird because right after a chapter finished it jump right to a different character. This is why I gave Circus Mirandus a 2 star rating and 21 out of 24 from the rubric.
Circus Mirandus 5 Stars 23/24
Has anyone very close to you died? Have you ever had to stay with your horrible aunt for the rest of your life? Probably not, but Micah has. He is a character in Circus Mirandus.
Circus Mirandus is a book with a lot of magic. In fact, it has a magic circus in it! It is about a man that was given a miracle and wants to use it now. I gave the book 5 stars and a rubric rating of 23/24. I did that because: The plot language in this book was spectacular! The text says,”His notebook rustled again, and he looked down. The sketch of the spoon unraveled, every line Micah had scrawled coming apart from every other and flowing into a new shape before his eyes. An arrow, pointing to the front of the room.” That is good pot language. The book is also very organized. I liked how it all made sense to me. I gave organization a 4. Circus Mirandus was a book that interested me very much. In the beginning, the text says, “Four small words. That was all it took to set things in motion.” That hooked me. I gave originality a 3 because I have read books with magic in them before. I have never read a book with a magic circus though! That is all my evidence. Make sure to read Circus Mirandus sometime soon!
