Interview With Author Aline Soules

She calls the ringmaster of the circus and asks him to send the circus, but he doesn't. Instead, the craziest things start to happen!

Every week, the ringmaster sends Aria a package—each containing an amazing circus character. But Aria has to put the circus characters in the backyard because each one does something very silly that upsets her mommy and daddy: the magician hides her baby sister, the strongman lifts all the furniture, and the juggler throws everything, even her baby sister, in the air, and the fire eater burns the curtains.

The circus people ask Aria to become their ringmaster, but she isn't sure she is brave enough to speak in front of lots of people. Aria star…
