AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Before he came to Zarconi's, Gus didn't even know he had grandparents, let alone ones who juggled knives and ate fire. Now he's caught up in their world of magicians, stilt-walkers, tattooed tenthands, elephant turds - and there's a snake-girl who might become his best friend or his worst enemy. This is Zarconi's Incredible Travelling Circus, and it's full of mysteries. Why is everyone so secretive about Gus's family? Why won't they let him on the trapeze? Is it true that Zarconi's is cursed?

'A fast-moving story of discovery, change and identity from the author of the acclaimed Children of the Wind series.'  (Publication summary)
