As a child I didn't like this story because it made me so sad and so mad at the way the juggler was treated when he got older, but I love it now and Tomie de Paolo is treasure. I love this book.

This book is powerful testimony to the gifts we are each given by God, and using them well. Makes me cry everytime I read it to my kiddos!
