Our offering for this month’s Carnival of Children’s Literature (thank you to Just Children’s Books for hosting) is a list of Circus, Carnivale, and Paranormal themed books for children and young adults that we have reviewed for our bimonthly theme which ended during the first week of March.
It was great to discover quite a number of picture books that dealt with the paranormal: from banshees, to vampires, to monsters. Click on the thumbnails to be taken to our detailed review of the books.
We were also glad to (re)discover quite a few picture books that celebrated the strangenesses and beautiful oddities of the carnivale and the circus people as can be seen in the following:
We even found a few picture book biographies of actual circus people as you can note here:
Paranormal or Circus-themed Poetry Books
Middle Grade/ Young Adult Fiction
