A fun and exuberant picture book about twin sisters with very different talents.
Mirabelle and Meg Moffat are twins, and their mom and dad are famous circus acrobats. Mirabelle is fearless. She promises to be the most topsy-turvy, upside-down acrobat of all. Unlike Meg, who is afraid of heights. But with a grand new show featuring Mirabelle about to open, it soon becomes clear that there is at least one thing that does scare Mirabelle. Could it be time for Meg’s talent to shine?
While the finale highlights individualism, wise caregivers will also note the common pitfall of expecting children to follow in their footsteps. The twins’ yellows and blues set against the reds of the circus tent give the story a pleasing primary palette and retro style befitting the circus theme…Big top fun. —Kirkus Reviews
Simple artwork featuring black outlines and primary colors carries a slight vintage vibe and a dynamic mix of action sequences, full-page illustrations, and dramatic double-page spreads..A cute ode to individuality. —Booklist
A delightful story about twins and a reminder that talent is individual. A fun read-aloud for storytime or one-on-one (or two) sharing. —School Library Journal
