A novel and series in development

Minty in The Circus Show is a science show for children ages 5 to 10.  There is also a young readers series in development, for the same demographic.

Minty is a creative little girl who loves inventing and doing acrobatics. She and her best friend, Chump, the baby chimp in a diaper, have escaped from her home village of Umptious because of a villainous plot schemed by Vinnie Casino, a greedy factory owner! Minty must find her legendary Great Aunt Houser Von Hokenson, who travels the world as a renowned circus acrobat and is said to be the cleverest Umption ever! Minty knows all about her Great Aunt from the exciting stories Minty’s mom tells the children of Umptious. Minty has a homemade journal full of drawings and diagrams from every invention and science experiment her Great Aunt has used to get out of pickles, binds and jams! Minty loves these stories so much that they seem to come to life every time she opens her journal.

As they set out on their quest, Minty and Chump meet some unique friend with unique talents (and problems). Together, this new eteam travels from circus to sideshow to carnival, looking for the Great Houser Von Hokenson. Along the way, they find themselves helping different circus folk solve their own dilemmas with science and creative problem solving. Minty’s great aunt seems always just out of reach, while Vinnie Casino is always one step behind, trying to stop Minty from succeeding!

I just found a drawing I did a year ago of my friend, El Gleno Grande. He says he looks like an ostrich (he does has a very long neck).

Enjoy!
