Narrator Sarah Zimmerman captures the wonder in this middle-grade mystery set against the backdrop of a traveling circus. Mattie's family, the Marvelwood Magicians, are traveling performers whose talents--mind reading, fortune-telling, even invisibility--are entirely real. The Marvelwoods never seem to fit in, but when they join Master Morogh's Circus of Wonders, all that changes. Zimmerman sensitively conveys Mattie's shy delight at finding friends and a place to call home while also depicting her maturing understanding of the choices her parents have made. When tragedy strikes and the circus is put in danger, Zimmerman brings forth Mattie's determination to protect her loved ones and set things right. Ringing with sincerity, this dynamic and captivating audio is a perfect choice for family listening. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
