When Max suggests putting on a circus, Francine immediately appoints herself the star of the show and designates Max as the assistant. Francine juggles balls, tames tigers and rides a wild stallion. Max begs to participate, but Francine refuses to give up center stage. When Max gets fed up and jumps into the ring, they try to one-up each other with disastrous results. Through argument, compromise and imaginative play, they eventually come together to put on the best circus ever!

Illustrated by the talented Capucine Mazille, this is a fun book about adjusting to a new bed for ages 2-5!
