Listener Opinions

    " One of my grade-school teachers used to read to us every day and I remember listening to this and enjoying it. I think I probably re-read it myself at least a few times. I suspect we would find it very dated now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 6/27/2013

    " How could I not read a book with one of my children's names in the title? And it's also titled Ten Weeks in the Circus! The story itself is pretty charming, and old fashioned. I think it could have been half as long and still been as effective in the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nellie K. | 5/4/2013

    " I didn't read it but someone read it to us in class in primary school in Belgium. I saw the movie and I loved it. "

    " I liked this book as a kid, so decided to read it again as an adult. Not quite as enjoyable, but still pretty good. :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brianna Karp | 3/2/2013

    " Nostalgic... brings back memories of my childhood, as well as of an era long before I was born. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Sammis | 2/26/2013

    " It was my mom's book. Great escapist read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Kelly | 1/3/2013

    " I loved this book as a kid. Probably why I have a lifetime longing to run away and join the circus. Very appealing to the imaginative child. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 R. | 11/28/2012

    " I think the monkey...the monkey dies...? Or is trained to strangle and...the circus leaves town before the detective catches on? I dunno. It was the 1980s. That was Interchangeable Plot No. 2 (No. 1 was Stranger Comes to Town, Finds Love in Unlikeliest Spot). "

    " HAVEN'T WE ALL WANTED TO RUN AWAY TO THE CIRCUS. AREN'T WE ALL LIVING IN A CIRCUS ANYWAYS? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Horney | 9/25/2012

    " i liked it right up to the obligatory "homecoming scene". i woulda stuck w/the circus. "

    " One of my favorites as a kid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Micha | 2/26/2012

    " This book has a lasting place in my memory as I remember my father reading it to me a chapter a night at bedtime. "

    " My grandma gave me this book a long time ago. It was her favorite(she loved reading just like I do). RIP Grandma <3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brey | 2/12/2012

    " My kids love these books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette Boehm | 2/5/2012

    " If this is the first time you come across this theme, I guess it would be more enjoyable (i.e. for a child) but I found it a bit tiring - Toby regrets his decision pretty much the moment he makes it, so has not much fun with his adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jailynn | 2/3/2012

    " Since me and the kids all went to the circus I thought it would be a fun book to read with them, I read it back when I was in 4th or 5th grade and remembered liking it. "
