The Farmer and the Clown

Marla Frazee. S. & S./Beach Lane.

PreS-Gr 2–Two seemingly poles-apart individuals—a young clown accidentally ejected from a passing circus train and the stern-faced farmer who cares for the tot until his family returns—experience compassion and companionship in this wordless adventure. Frazee’s muted palette and minimalist backgrounds allow the characters’ shared affection to shine.
