The first book by beloved children’s musician Ralph Covert and esteemed playwright G. Riley Mills Many years ago there lived a little boy with big dreams who ran away with the circus. William Cameron Coup fell in love with the big top and later became one of the most famous circus leaders of all time. But Coup also had another dream: to create a different kind of circus . . .underwater! And so he built the great New York Aquarium—the likes of which had never been seen before! Grammy-nominated children’s musician Ralph Covert and award-winning playwright G. Riley Mills have crafted a remarkable slice of Americana, illustrated by celebrated artist Giselle Potter. Complete with tightrope-walking elephants, bearded ladies, and side-splitting clowns,Sawdust and Spanglestells the real story of a man who made all his dreams come true and whose life was as extraordinary as the spectacle he created.
