  • This was a very cute story of Olivia. She tells her class that she "saved the circus" after she arrived at the circus and all of the performers had ear infections. Olivia told her classmates she was the one girl circus, training dogs, jumping on trampolines, just to name a few things. And she claims it was all true. This book would be good to teach a lesson about story telling, whether it be real or not, and story telling infront of your peers.

  • Olivia has to stand up and tell her class what she did during the summer. She explains how she went to the circus but all of the circus people were out with an ear ache so she took on the show and mastered everything even being the tattooed man.
