Absolutely amazing story of Mr Galliano’s circus!

My 8yr old son says: I love Mr Galliano circus because it is such a great story and it’s a very long one as well! I think it is a story for children aged 4 to 10 Years Old. I don’t remember anything at all that I didn’t like about it! Five star rating! Great names, great storyline and great voices! Great thing to listen to for a nap or a quiet time! Absolutely love it! 😀😃😄😄😁😁😆😆🤗🤩🤩🥳🥳😋😋😛😛.

Much Loved!

My five year old grand daughter was just delighted with this story. She listens before bed. I can hear her laughter from my bedroom. She started incorporating it into her daytime play. She had her Barbie dolls walking a tightrope and riding Zebras. This is by far her favorite story. Thanks to Enid Blyton for writing it.

Entertaining nostalgic listen

I was a big fan of Enid Blyton growing up, but had never come across these circus stories before. I enjoyed listening to this. I don't know if they altered it at all from the orginal text (as other publishers have done with my favourite Faraway Tree series), as I never read this particular series. But it is un PC enough for me to think that they left it as it was. I think books should be left in their original format - warts and all - and not 'modernised'. It's half their charm, even if if raises eyebrows at what was acceptable behaviour at the time it was written.

Ok but not the favourite Enid Blyton story

Fairly interesting for a five year old but he didn't finish the whole thing unlike Faraway tree stories
