When Pierre wakes from his daily nap to find himself in the midst of a traveling circus, he thinks he's dreaming. He bravely tames the lion, walks the tightrope, juggles flaming hoops, and more, because, "as it was his dream, or so he thought, he had no fear." At the end of a full but tiring day, Pierre resumes his nap under an olive tree. But this time he wakes to find the circus gone -- except for some small mementos that suggest he hadn't been dreaming at all....

In this highly unusual and engaging tale, a multi-award-winning author and highly acclaimed illustrator join their powerful forces to show how marvelous life can be when we conquer our fears. Lively prose is perfectly matched by bold, vibrant images that invite children to return again and again.
