About the Book
Discover the mischievous and affectionate side of a revered poet in this adventure about Emily Dickinson, four young friends, and a traveling circus.

When an invitation to join Miss Emily in the garden appears, Mattie, Ned, Sally, and Mac know they’re in for some fun because Miss Emily — Emily Dickinson to the rest of us — always has a surprise in store for her young friends. And today’s may be the biggest adventure yet. In Burleigh Mutén’s suspenseful story, beautifully illustrated by celebrated artist Matt Phelan, Mac, the youngest member of the group, tells what happens when a reclusive poet and her band of pretend Gypsies wait for the midnight circus train to arrive.

My Take on the Book
This was such a unique book. I was impressed with the flow and the characters in this book. The book itself is written almost as a set of letters, but they all flow well together and take you on a journey that you will want to continue on from beginning to end. The book itself was engaging and makes you want to read and know more (at least it did for me). So get ready for an adventure and get to know the wonderful characters that Burleigh Muten has created and enjoy the images of Matt Phelan, you will not be disappointed that you did!
