"The Great Death-Defying Signor Joseph Dobbinelli: Most Daring Animal Trainer in the World", the sign reads, and Sr. Dobbinelli is in need of a good, stout winter barn for his circus animals. Clay and his family have just the barn in Connecticut, but do they have what it takes to care for lions and tigers?
In this delightful tale of adventure and family life on the farm, Clay is in for some lessons on responsibility and wild-animal training.
What members say
Just what I want in fun books for my young boys. This book was delightful in how it portrays honesty and bravery in a real way and I love the way the family treats each other. A cute story of a boy who loves learning about taking care of circus animals when they come to stay in his barn for the winter. The narrator did a good job; however, we did feel she could have been a bit more varied or animated between characters.
