series will have children on the edge of their seats as they experience a different culture, historical period and a different world of just 30 years ago! But they will see that in one sense, these two worlds aren't that different. Christian children in any era or country will identify with Ivan ns Katya's struggles to stay faithful despite the name-calling, teasing and enmity of their fellow classmates. They'll also see the other side of persecution--the separation from families, the secrecy, fear of discovery, interrogations and injustice of a communist/atheistic society.
In Ivan and the Moscow Circus, Ivan and his sister Katya are going to the great Moscow circus to see their new friend Volodia perform the amazing triple somersault on his trapeze. But in spite of the fun they can't forget that Volodia's uncle, a great Russian poet, has been imprisoned for criticizing the Communist government. Katya and Ivan long to help. But what can a teenage boy and a ten-year-old girl do against the powerful Secret Police? Read how a key, a car, a foreign journalist and a clown suit help Ivan in one of his greatest adventures. Recommended for ages 9 to 12.
