The Daring Escape of Beatrice and Peabody by Kimberly Newton Fusco is a debut of enormous charm, about a lonely orphan named Bee who escapes a travelling carnival in the company of a small, equally lonely dog

The Daring Escape Of Beatrice And Peabody tells the story of Beatrice, an orphan, who works the hot dog stand at a travelling fair and tries to stay unnoticed. With a birthmark covering almost half of her face, it's not always easy to escape unwanted attention, however.

With just a scruffy little dog for a friend, there comes a time when Beatrice has to leave the fair, and find a real home for them both. A lovely story with a touch of magic.
