Mr Benn is an ordinary man who has extraordinary adventures. In this enchanting story he swaps his bowler hat and black suit for a clown costume and finds himself transported into a world of big-top tents and circus performers.
First published thirty years ago, Big-Top Benn is one of a series of stories by author and illustrator David McKee that inspired the legendary Mr Benn TV series. McKee’s original artwork brings the glories of a golden age of children’s book illustration and story-telling to a new generation.
David McKee is the author and illustrator of over 100 children’s books and the creator of several memorable characters besides Mr Benn, including Elmer the Patchwork Elephant and King Rollo.
