A beautifully written, lyrical tale featuring a cast of funny and
loveable characters, created by CBeebies' presenter Cerrie Burnell
and stunningly illustrated by Laura Ellen Anderson.

are flying on the scarlet umbrella when they see a girl running

As the children meet the mermaid acrobat, the spectacular circus
baker, the mysterious fortune teller and the acrobatics troop, they
begin to realise something about Harper's past...
