Title:  Under the big top : a season with the circus 
What happens when a guy with degrees from Cambridge and Yale runs away and joins the circus? That’s exactly what Bruce Feiler did, and what he details in this engrossing story. From the inner workings of Clown Alley to detailed looks at all the animals and how they live, the author takes you behind the scenes and tells you the stories of many of the performers. It’s entertaining and educational. Recommended for “Children of All Ages,” as they say in the circus.
