Cassie Beasley’s story for grades 4-7, Circus Mirandus (Dial Books), celebrates the power of seeing magic in the world. In its starred review, School Library Journal writes, “This gripping fantasy tale will have readers hooked from the opening scene to the breathtaking—and unexpected—conclusion.” A graduate of the Vermont College of Fine Arts, this is Beasley’s first book.
