Popcorn, peanuts, music, jugglers, animals, rides, and games. All things that make the circus the circus!
Imagine living in the 1920’s when a dollar was A LOT of money…almost too much for Papa to let young Georgie and his buddy Harley go and see the sights, sounds and smells when the circus came to town.
But Papa relented and the three of them head for the Big Top and a four-legged surprise that none of them planned on.
The Circus Thief
Beautifully illustrated by Lauren Gallegos, The Circus Thief is the fourth installment of author Alane Adams’ series of heartwarming tales of boyhood set in 1920s Pennsylvania.
The circus is in town, and Georgie has his heart set on going. When Papa agrees to take him and his friend Harley, the boys marvel at the amazing elephants and clowns. But the best act of all is the amazing Roxie, a trained horse who can do all sorts of tricks. When Georgie is invited to ride on her back, he discovers it’s her last show―Roxie is going to be sent to the work farm! When Roxie bolts with Georgie on her back, Papa must come to his rescue.
Alane Adams is the award-winning author of the Norse mythology adventure series, LEGENDS of ORKNEY.
When not penning gorgeous picture books, readers can find her writing mythology-based fiction for tweens and young adults. Alane is a professor at a local university in Southern California. Interestingly enough, Alane just returned from an exciting adventure walking the Camino trail in Spain!

One More Thing..,
Does your heart long to roam? Find new adventures? Maybe even go on a Pilgrimage?
Evans Bowen’s new book, Pilgrimage: A Modern Seeker’s Guide, speaks to those who crave spiritual travel and soul-seeking adventures.
“A pilgrimage creates a sacred space where your physical body and heart can meet and meld into one. As the sacred space opens more light shines in and new vistas, ideas, languages, and experiences bring you to a new place in your life you could never imagine before.”
A tradition of all religions, Pilgrimage is a journey to sacred sites as an act of devotion and dedication. It is time to expand the definition of Pilgrimage to inform modern life. Taking time to visit a place near home or around the globe, to open the mind and heart to the Divine, brings healing and new meaning to life. Pilgrimage is both an external journey to a place longed for and an internal journey to the center of our most authentic self.
Each part of the journey, from the first desire to visit a holy place, to the return home to integrate the experience, becomes the pilgrimage to expand our world, both body and soul. Combining practical steps for the physical journey and 40 days of inspiration for the spirit, this guidebook gives this time-honored journey to the Divine to inform the whole person in our increasingly fragmented world.
