The Circus Lunicus was a legend in Mintzville. Then suddenly, the circus stopped coming. Nobody knew why. There was a rumor that the Men in Black had deported the performers. There was a rumor that some of the performers were not from Planet Earth. Everybody in town filled the stands, trying to figure out if the rumor was true. So far no one had succeeded. Jason and Mason had never seen the circus. Neither had their mother. But Solly had. For years the circus used to show up every June, regular as fireflies. And every June, Solly and his parents had gone to see it. Allof the acts were wonderful.

For generations, girls have dreamed of having their problems magically put into focus via a fairy godmother, no matter how bleak their lives (with or without ugly-hearted step families) might be. Young MEN now have a hero in mysterious shoes, courtesy of charming and prolific children's author, Marilyn Singer. Thanks to an absentee mother, a work-weary father, a nasty stepmother and two creepy step bros, Solly has it tough. But stumbling on (and in) to the Circus Lunicus will definitely put a new spin on his odd little life. Peeking in on Solly's curious adventure is sure to delight readers from 8 to 10 (not to mention the grown-ups smart enough to snuggle up and read it with them).

This is an odd little story with some bizzare twists and turns that ultimately entertains but does not satisfy the reader. Solomon Yanish is the youngest of three boys in a disfunctional family. Solly quickly realizes there is a connection between his mothers disappearance six years ago and the return of the Circus Lunicus. The first half of the book reads like a whimsical mystery as Solly creeps around the circus trying to discover it's secrets. The second half of the book is a science fiction farce. Solly's toy lizard becomes a real six foot tall reptile named Freeble. She helps Solly become a reptile too! Solly finds out that the whole circus crew are from planet Reptilia. Eventually, we find out that Solly's mom is a reptilian and that they came back to reclaim Solly as one of their own. In one of the more "realistic" passages, Solly and his stepmother argue and she smacks him. While this is a bizzare enough tale to hold a child's attention, it lacks focus and meaning.
