Misty Circus by Victoria Franc├ęs, 80 pages, read by Angie, on 04/07/2013

Sasha has lost his mother and now his father is gone. He leaves the streets of Paris and wonders into the forest. In the forest he finds a talking cat. Sasha and the cat make their way through the mist until they come upon a circus tent. They join the Misty Circus. The circus master sends them on a journey to a land of witches where they meet a young blind witch. They convince her to join the circus as well.

This was a charming little book. Very short, but with lovely illustrations. It reminded me of the Brian Selznick books in a way. I was definitely left wanting more.
