Welcome to the greatest show on earth, the circus. There's magic and daring, amazing acts and incredible tricks with Mum and Dad, the trapeze artists; sister Sue, the juggler; Wobble and Wilt, the acrobats; Mr Mysterio, the magician; Grandad, the trick cyclist; Grandma, the strongwoman; Wellington, the balancing dog - and then the narrator, Harry, who doesn't seem to be able to do anything. He has a go at all the acts,,but always makes a mess of things - which is why his job is simply to look after Wellington. But when the dog sees a mouse and chases after it, pulling Harry along behind, the boy performs the most amazing feats of all - and makes everyone laugh at the same time. So, put your hands together for the star of the show: Harry the Clown! John Prater illustrated "On Friday Something Funny Happened", which was a runner-up for the Mother Goose Award, "No! said Joe" and "Once Upon a Time".
