Doe’s Circus, one of the last of its kind in Australia. Travelling across the country all year round, thousands of humans visit to revel in the tradition of Dagwood dogs, dodgem cars and the weekend prime time show.
Yet for the animals locked away in the small confines of the petting zoo, the circus is a neon-lit, human-infested nightmare.
Tormented by the ringmaster and his gang of tyrannical showmen, two pigs, a rooster and a sheep devise a plan to accomplish the impossible―escape the circus.
This one had its ups and downs for me. There were parts I thought were ingenious and really put things in perspective and there were some that made me flinch a bit. I think the writing itself was done in a way that it flowed effortlessly. I liked the use of humor to cut some of the tension as well.
