says Jimmy to himself but sure enough, the little ragamuffin has left her ragged old frock behind in the caravan and is now a vision of beauty complete with a silver crown on her head and a silver wand in her hand. Jimmy's a very lucky boy to be shown round like this because you'd think that all the local guys and girls would be hanging around the camp but it's not so.

Madame Prunella joins the show with her talking parrots, and so do three new clowns (Twinkle, Pippi and Google), a performing seal and twelve zebras. The main message is "be kind to animals", which is all well and good, but the situations are rushed and superficial until almost the end of the book. Sirkus yang identik dengan 'penyiksaan terhadap hewan', dalam cerita ini justru dikisahkan sebagai tempat di mana para pecinta hewan berada.With his own great love for animals and his remarkable ability to make them trust him, Jimmy soon becomes a favourite with the circus folk and even wins the approval of the great Mr Galliano himself. He doesn't hesitate to fire trapeze artists Jan and Yol on discovering that they have been treating their dog cruelly. Whether he could lure the birds from the skies is anyone's guess although his adopted brother — Jack, would certainly approach his capabilities where flying creatures are concerned.

We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring theres something for every literary palate. Galliano himself, Jimmy is lucky enough to be hailed at by a cute little lass who could well be Carlotta, a circus girl known to many Blyton fans and whose school experiences were followed in the landmark 'St. Born in London in 1897, Enid lived much of her life in Buckinghamshire and loved dogs, gardening and the countryside.AS PICTURED - 5 IMAGES * Second Edition, 1939 A worn copy, complete but with scuffed and marked boards and frequent small handling marks throughout. One further Galliano story - A Circus Adventure was published in the Sunny Stories magazine and reprinted in Enid Blyton's Omnibus (published in 1952). The two children roam the countryside and let the dogs loose for a good run and very unfortunately, one of them — Darky, is lost! Even after her death, her endearing stories continue to draw the rapt attention of children everywhere.
