When the circus is over,
After the standing ovation,
What do clowns do
When they go on vacation?
They make us laugh until our sides
but these hardworking clowns just need a break.
Now that the Big Top is folded and their bags are all packed,
the Clowns are taking a rest from their act.
Whether they're climbing a mountain
or digging for treasure,
they always seem to have a nose for adventure.
Wherever they go, whatever they do,
they are always clowns through and through.

photomontage with vibrant gouache paintings
to create a picture book chock-full
of delightful verbal and visual humor.
