Fazzi, Maura, & Peter Kuhner THE CIRCUS OF MYSTERY. Translated by Rosemary Lanning. Il. by authors. ISBN 0-7358-1168-7. Switzerland: North-South Books, 1999. Unp. $15.95. In his ordinary gray world, Augustus fortuitously finds and dons a clown's red nose. Immediately, he is transformed into a clown who cracks jokes, plays tricks, and makes new friends. The illustrations in this highly imaginative story humorously portray animals, toys, and people. Shades of gray represent Augustus's sad times, while earth tones, sprinkled with primary colors, reveal Augustus's happy and creative times. Ages 4-9. Reviewed by Janet S.
