Richly illustrated and with a simple, loving message, this board book is the perfect introduction to the value of quiet virtues like friendship, kindness, and loyalty.
Jane isn't strong like her dad or graceful like her mom. She isn't brave like her sisters or daring like her brothers. When she tries to be those things, Jane just doesn't feel like herself. Is she special enough for a life in show-biz? Her ringmaster thinks so, but not for the reasons Jane expects. This sweet story of an ordinary dog in an extraordinary circus family is now available as a board book

"Extraordinary Jane...burst[s] with color and magnificence." —The New York Times
* "This is an exceptionally polished first book. Harrison's acrylic paintings, which blend realistic animal portraits with a charmingly old-fashioned circus setting to very funny effect, are the star of the show, but her understated storytelling and pacing are equally on the mark." —Publishers Weekly, starred review
* "A touching, delectably illustrated circus story that applauds the underdog." —Kirkus, starred review
* "In a world full of competition for kids to be the fastest, smartest, and best at everything, this story's message is a worthy one." —School Library Journal, starred review
