The Fabulous Foskett Family Circus

By Quentin Blake, John Yeoman

Take a ringside seat for this glorious romp from our master picture book illustrator in top gear!

Roll up, roll up for the Fabulous Foskett Family Circus! There's Milly and Willy who perform with young Fred, who does a back flip and lands on his head. Uncle Phoenix Foskett who blows smoke rings, Jess and Bess with their conjuring tricks, not to mention singing dogs and birds and performing parrots.

Combined here with a specially commissioned text by John Yeoman they now star in their own glorious book, which will be enjoyed and treasured by readers of all ages.
