Publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. This past summer, however, my wonderful editor took a new position at Harcourt.
It takes galacticuw liberties with the comic book canon, but I found it to be marvelous and rich and entertaining in its own way. Hope you are all having a great summer!

Albeit, if you like a fantasy novel that whisks you all over the universe, incorporates some very whimsical themes e.

Book Reviews for Tweens and Teens – Library Lady: Circus Galacticus Book Review
She is not to her knowledge a space-faring mutant, though she has been known to dye her hair bright colors and is easily distracted by a particularly fine starry night sky. She can even fight back against the mysterious stranger in a silver mask who tries to steal the meteorite her parents trusted her to protect.
Again with the cryptic statements and sillyness. Jul 06, Lucas rated it really liked it Shelves: Something else for educators to note, there are a few instances of very mild cursing within this story.
She held me so tight I can almost feel her arms, even now, nine years later. I never really warmed up to the idea of it because it wasn’t developed enough and the characters themselves seemed just as mystified by it. As it turns out, both Trix and that cigcus moon rock are something special after all.
Why the low rating? First the characters; they were interesting and mysterious at times, but all in all were just not all that well developed, and just plain confusing. I don’t like message books that are too blatant like this. Naturally she goes anyhow and when he chases her, she ends up backstage and meets the oh so handsome Ringmaster he has no other name.
Ga,acticus name, same desire for conformity. She pretty much runs away to live with an intergalactic circus and then it all got dull from then on out.
After the first two chapters, however, the story ciecus in a very unique direction. Meet the Earther Beatrix “Trix” Ling: I begged my dad to hoist me up on his shoulders, but even he wasn’t tall enough.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Trix can deal with being an orphan charity case at a snotty boarding school.
Think Luke Skywalker in a circus. Nov 05, Emma Rae rated it it was amazing. Circus Galacticus by Deva Fagan was a cute, middle grade read.

I do think that there are more of these heroines out there right now than we might think. Aug 01, Raina rated it really liked it Shelves: This book may seem very, very boring. Seriously unhappy at her boarding school, she often gets into trouble due to the fact she’s quick to rile and doesn’t think things through before acting or speaking. After bullies at the Bleeker Academy for Girls prevent her from attending a gymnastics competition—and thus becoming an astronaut—and a mysterious man visits her in the middle of the night, year-old Beatrix Ling finds refuge with a space-faring circus.
Nyl, one of the main characters from Team Mandate, likes to argue his stance that there are dire galactixus that come with allowing people to have differences within society: Heinlein, Ultraviolet by R. Each chapter ended pretty much the way circcus previous did, with more questions, very little action on the part of the main characters and huge buildup to an ending that didn’t make a whole lot of sense.
