Book Description:
Toby Tyler tells the story of a ten year-old orphan who runs away from a foster home to join the traveling circus only to discover his new employer is a cruel taskmaster. The difference between the romance of the circus from the outside and the reality as seen from the inside is graphically depicted. Toby's friend, Mr. Stubbs the chimpanzee, reinforces the consequences of what happens when one follows one's natural instincts rather than one's intellect and conscience, a central theme of the novel.

Subject: Toby Tyler or Ten Weeks with a circus
The story is OK, somewhat simplistic but enjoyable enough. The narrators or their audio recordings for some chapters detract from the pleasure of the story as a whole.
