”…Brian Wildsmith’s painterly instincts take over.”

The School Librarian

Every year the fair comes to the village where Rosie and Tom live. They wish it would stay forever, but after a few days it always moves on to the next town. The children watch as the carousel is taken down and carried away. One winter Rosie gets sick. To cheer her up, her brother gives her a little toy carousel, just like the one at the fair. As it turns and plays its magic tune the magic begins!

Brian Wildsmith lets us all experience the enchantment a carousel holds for a child in this richly imagined picture-book world.
