Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

The Hall Family Chronicles begun with the Newbery Honor book The Fledgling continues with The Mysterious Circus by Jane Langton. Prince Krishna (the man behind The Diamond in the Window and who gave Edward, last seen in The Time Bike, the title gift) takes something out of his treasure chest (that "trumpet[s], like animals in a jungle far away") and sends the mysterious gift to the Halls via his nephew. Meanwhile, a plan is afoot to build an amusement park in quiet Concord, Mass., in the Mill Brook meadow-right across from the Halls. Readers won't be surprised that Edward, Eleanor and Georgie prevail, but how they do it makes for a vastly entertaining read. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
