Meet Tommy, the circus clown who lost his clothes before the show in the story The Clown's Clothes by Eszter Molnar. Tommy had lost his trousers, hat, and his right shoe and he was really sad as he walked back to his caravan. He thought it was the worst day he had ever had. His friends asked around and checked under the bushes but his clothes were nowhere to be found. They had just sat down to rest when they heard a terrible commotion. It was Luella returning with Zandara and her favorite ball. The elephant greeted Tommy and saw Tommy's hat on the tree...

The Clown's Clothes by Eszter Molnar is an adorable story of friendship and the circus community coming together to help Tommy and the book brings out the circus ambiance wonderfully. Anita Bagdi's illustrations are colorful and lively and they make the characters and the scenes tangible for readers and help them experience the story as if they are there. It is a good story for read-aloud and story-telling sessions and will encourage children to go to a real circus and see the fun that happens there. All the characters, be it Tommy, Luella, Mr. Hyde, Gloria, and Nick are real, relatable, memorable to readers, including the animals in the story that have their own personalities. Children will enjoy the story and will have fun getting to know the circus community through this book.
