‘Freewheeling frivolity’ – Financial Times
‘Once, and once only, there was a boy whose name was Fizzlebert.’
Fizzlebert Stump lives in a circus. But when the ringmaster sells Fizz’s circus to the mysterious Mr Pinkbottle, disaster strikes! All the acts who aren’t fired are forced to work in his supermarket. Not an easy task at all if your only skill is plate-spinning or being a trapeze artist, or indeed a sea lion! Will the ex-circus performers adjust to their new lives as shop assistants, or will Fizz find a way to save them all?
