Step right up! Shank’s Impossible Circus is back in town in this “utterly madcap adventure of sabotage and adventure” (The Guardian) from bestselling author William Sutcliffe and featuring wonderful illustrations by David Tazzyman.
The zany adventure continues and now there’s about to be double the trouble as dastardly ringmaster Armitage Shank comes face to face with his long lost twin! Oh no, how will the world cope with two Shanks?
A brilliant mix of slapstick humor and word-play, Circus Thievesand the Comeback Caper is perfect as both a first read-alone novel and is also fun for adults to share at bedtime.
