44 Tiny Acrobats

Author: Sylvia Bishop

Join brave and spirited heroine Betsy and her forty-four tiny mice in a thrilling new adventure.

When Fry’s Circus of Wonders pitches its tent opposite Betsy’s house, Betsy feels a strange sense of longing. But Grandad can’t even bear to look at it – it stirs up too many painful memories of Grandma’s days as a circus performer.

As her parents rally round Grandad, Betsy slips away to see the show. But Betsy isn’t the only one enjoying the spectacle – her forty-four mice have escaped and seem intent on joining in! As the mice gatecrash the magic act, disaster strikes and Betsy finds herself facing up to the odious ringmaster with a lot of explaining to do…

Beautifully illustrated in two-colour, this is the second adventure for Besty and her forty-four mice, from the acclaimed duo behind THE BOOKSHOP GIRL. For fans of ISADORA MOON, AMELIA FANG, OTTOLINE and HARPER.

"Perfect for fans of Isadora Moon... My six year old loves these stories, and Betsy. We can't wait to find out what happens next!" Heather Fishwick
"With its focus on Betsy’s problem-solving skills, and also her determination not to upset her Grandad, this second adventure is as delightful and involving for youngsters as 44 Tiny Secrets (although this book’s not without its own secrets)." Red Reading Hub
"This is a perfect book for young readers to enjoy with endearing characters, plenty of action and humour, and wonderful messages of friendship and family." Book Craic
"This is a wonderful series for those who are slightly too young for middle grade fiction, but ready to tackle something slightly chunkier and more mature than a lot of chapter books. Five out of five cats!" A Cat, A Book, And A Cup of Tea
"I think other children should read this book because it is funny and a little bit scary, but has a happy ending. I think it is perfect." Lyra (child reviewer), Books Up North
"Every bit as delightful as ‘44 Tiny Secrets’, Betsy’s latest adventure is a joy." North Somerset Teachers' Book AwardWard
"An absolute delight" Mrs Sydney’s famous World’s Smallest Library
