Roll up, roll up for a review of Circus of Thieves and the Raffle of Doom by William Sutcliffe. Packed with ‘sneaky characters’ this novel is about a travelling circus which is really run by a bunch of thieves. Rider excellently summed up the plot: ‘Billy, a boy from the circus makes friends with Hanna, a girl in the village and tells her the secret of what they are doing.’

‘It is an amusing adventure book and when I read the first page to my mum she started laughing out loud! It is a story about making friends, even if you are a dog or a camel. I would recommend this book and I am really looking forward to reading the next one when it comes out. Thank you William Sutcliffe!’
