Esme Dooley and the Kirkkomaki Circus

by Jane Donovan and Holly Trechter
“A dead person?” asks eleven-year-old Esme. How intriguing! She has just learned that she is going on a journey in search of a dead person. Was she going to a cemetery? Or maybe to a funeral?

By train, by gypsy wagon, and even by ostrich, Esme takes a summer journey. She and her grandmother and her cousin Tommy meet up with a circus that is going through harrowing times, for someone is pulling wicked shenanigans! Caught in the conundrum, Esme and Tommy eagerly don their sleuth’s hats to try to solve the mystery. When tragedy strikes, they learn the importance of friendship, and they begin to understand the value of forgiveness.

This historical adventure portrays another humorous season in the life of Esme Dooley. It is set in rural Minnesota in 1904, where love is definitely in the air.
