For the past six years, Micha has loved living with Grandpa Ephraim. But when his grandfather falls ill, Micha's Great-Aunt Gertrudis comes to live with them. Despite being his grandfather's sister, Great-Aunt Gertrudis is nothing like Grandpa Ephraim; she's crabby, controlling, and does not believe in magic. Most importantly, Great-Aunt Gertrudis does not approve of Grandpa's stories of Circus Mirandus, a magical place Grandpa claimed to have visited as a boy.
When Micha discovers that his Grandpa has secretly sent a message to The
Lightbender, a magician from Circus Mirandus, Micha begins to wonder if Circus
Mirandus is more than just a story. If the circus actually exists, will
someone there be able to help cure Grandpa Ephraim? Micha and his friend,
Jenny, set out to find out. An engaging Fantasy read.
