Luscious, richly detailed artwork provides the perfect backdrop for this beautifully written story of friendship, perseverance and the power of taking a chance. Precious Little wants to be a trapeze artist but no one in the circus encourages her – apart from Fat Chance and Tough Luck, who run the lucky dip. Precious Little practises her skills, but it’s only when she takes a risk in the lucky dip that she really takes off. A heart-stirring story about the rewards of perseverance, friendship and taking a chance. reviews
