When Sir Sidney begins contemplating retirement from circus life he advertises for someone else to take his place. After interviewing numerous potential ringmasters he meets Mr. Barnabas Brambles who seems like the ideal candidate. As a test, Sir Sidney takes a week's vacation leaving Mr. Brambles in charge. He is given the circus schedule and specific instructions on how to care for Sir Sidney's beloved animals. Once he is on his own, Mr. Brambles starts doing things his own way which is a lot different from what he was told to do. Will Gert and Bert, the circus mice, be able to do anything to stop Mr. Bramble's greedy ways? This adorable new series by the sister team of Kate and Sarah Klise is sure to entertain readers in the 2nd grade on up!
