From her spot at the window, a young girl observes things most people have to pay to see. There are men walking on stilts, giraffes, jugglers, gilded wagons, and a long line of elephants marching down the street, as she works in the costume department for “The Greatest Show on Earth.” Join Nora as she searches for her role in creating the magic of the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus.

This is the second book in the Tales from American Her Story series, in which tidbits of American history are explored from the vantage point of a girl protagonist.
