The Butterfly Circus

By Francesca Armour-Chelu

A spellbinding, timeless and beautifully told adventure about two sisters and their journey to find each other again.

In this vivid and glittering adventure, perfect for fans of Kiran Millwood Hargrave and Katherine Rundell, sisters Alice and Belle are the stars of the grand finale of a circus show; a dazzling and perfectly timed trapeze act where they soar through the air like butterflies. One night, desperate to impress her older sister, Alice attempts a spectacular jump and falls. While Belle transforms into the star of the show above, Alice is reduced to sweeping the floor below and soon becomes shy and withdrawn. But when Belle mysteriously vanishes and Alice’s shadow miraculously comes to life, Alice starts to realize that the courage and strength she needs to rescue her sister, may have been inside her all along.
