Description

Step right up for Dr. Seuss’s classic rhyming picture-book tale of young Morris McGurk’s big circus dreams. This circus has more than a mere lion tamer and trapeze artist! At the Circus McGurkus, you’ll be intrigued by the wink-hooded Hoodwink, terrified by the Spotted Atrocious, and amazed by the daring feats of the great Sneelock. And these are just some of the astonishing things you’ll find under this big top. Told with the humor and originality that are synonymous with Dr. Seuss, If I Ran the Circus is a crowd-pleasing showstopper!

If I Ran the Circus is a grand rhyming Seussian hymn to each and every child’s grandest and wildest plans. At the back of Mr. Sneelock’s ramshackle store, there’s an empty lot. Little Morris McGurk is convinced that if he could just clear out the rusty cans, the dead tree, and the old cars, he would don’t have any further obstacles to the use of the lot for the amazing, the world-beating, Circus McGurkus. The more elaborate Morris’s dreams about the circus change into, the more they depend on sleepy-having a look, innocent Mr. Sneelock, who stands outdoor his ramshackle store sucking on a pipe, oblivious to the fate that awaits him in the depths of Morris’s imagination. He doesn’t yet know that he’s going to have to dispense 500 gallons of lemonade, be lassoed by a Wily Walloo, wrestle a Grizzly-Ghastly, and ski down a slope dotted with giant cacti. But if his performance is up to McGurkian expectations, then “why, ladies and gentlemen, youngsters and oldsters, your heads will slightly likely spin right off your shouldsters!” Welcome to the big top. (Ages 4 to 8) –Richard Farr
