    • Victoria Frances is my favorite artist so her stunning artwork automatically gets five stars The story is short and like a children s story though darker than most kids stories but within the story is also magic and friendship which almost every kid loves to read about.


    • Actual Star Rating 3.75 Stars Having been just recently introduced to the artist author I had no idea what this particular book would bring and so I started my adventures into this sad little world Although it was enjoyable I just couldn t find myself enjoying it as much as I did with Arlene s story I am grateful that the parts of poetry and songs that were used in a foreign language were translated into English for they were the right fit for the story Although not giving away much as to what t [...]


    • It s been years since this first two volumes have been published I wish there was the next adventure to look forward to in this series


    • Las ilustraciones son incre bles, pero la historia me ha sabido a poco y me ha dejado con ganas de m s, pues no se nos cuenta apenas nada.


    • 1.5 Stars Let me start with a compliment The artwork is absolutely beautiful Absolutely beautiful yet completely odd It reads nothing like a graphic novel where you go from scene to scene and you visually watch the story unfold The artwork was all these individual pieces that felt like the artist threw together from their collection and THEN tried writing a story to match Like many other reviewers, the storyline seemed to be aimed at kids yet was so poorly written I m not sure a kid would even b [...]


    • From a very early age Sasha was known for his androgynous looks, his profound shyness and, about all, his mercurial moods, which alternated between episodes of excessive elation and utter sadness Misty Circus by Victoria Franc sI am a huge fan of Victoria Franc s, and have been since I first stumbled across some of her gothic paintings As I write this, I have two of her prints framed and hanging on my wall I also own English versions of the three Favol books However, I have not gotten a chance t [...]

    • A sumptuous arresting cover I was immediately call out by this sad and magnetic illustration of a young clown.Unable to resist, I wanted to discover the world of this awesome Pierrot the Moon.Like any children s story, there are different ways to read Sasha s adventures.A strange little boy, marginalized by his appearance, that lives in the entertainment world until the day his mother died of the plague in the Paris of yesteryear His inconsolable father abandons him Without ever being undermined [...]

    • Read in May 2013Review originally posted May 24, 2013Edited June 11, 2013EDIT I m removing this book from my 2013 challenge for reasons my review notes Other graphic novels will stay.Received for free from Netgalley for an honest opinion.This review is going to be very short, but I ll get to as why in a moment The illustrations are just WOW The layout of the book, was nice, the pictures surrounded by the text of the story had a sort of collage look but it wasn t photos with subtitles, just the l [...]


    • Se o infame menino da l grima n o se limitasse pose hier tica reproduzida fielmente at exaust o e tivesse um livro ilustrado que narrasse as suas aventuras ou antes, desventuras, porque o menino da l grima teria de saltitar de desgra a em desgra a sempre com aquele seu olhar triste, sorriso deprimido e l grima a escorregar pelas faces Imaginem o menino da l grima perdido na floresta, adoptado por um grupo circense e com um gatinho antropom rfico lacrimoso como companheiro mais ou menos o que est [...]

    • Victoria Frances es una de las ilustradoras de fantas a oscura m s interesantes y precisas de los ltimos a os Mejor conocida e imitada hasta el hartazgo por las damas espectrales y p lidos vampiros de indudable filiaci n neo prerafaelistas g ticas reunidos en los libros de Favole, Frances se adentra en un mundo paralelo, quiz s no tan obviamente oscuro , pero no menos dram tico y unheimlich La imagen del peque o hu rfano Pierrot y su gato deben mucho a Sarah Kay y es posible considerarlos una es [...]


    • Siempre me han gustado las obras de Victoria Frances, su estilo, a la hora de pintar, no s lo es melanc lico, sombr o y muy expresivo, sino que tambi n tiene cierta luz, que evita que uno caiga en el m s terrible abismo cuando contempla sus cuadros Sus libros siempre me han resultado un deleite para los ojos y el alma Es por eso, que cuando supe de la edici n de Misty Circus , no par hasta poder tenerlo en mis manos En esta primera entrega, Victoria Frances nos introduce en la historia de Sasha, [...]


    • Sasha and Josh LeChat, who were both orphans but still held a slight hope in their hearts that a brighter future does indeed exist, are both wonderful characters, and were a real delight to get to know They became each other s only true friend in a sad world that had seemingly left them behind And, their lives suddenly changed when they discovered and became a part of Misty Circus, a circus shrouded in mist and full of magic beyond your wildest dreams And, things get even exciting, when upon th [...]

    • Sasha has lost his mother and now his father is gone He leaves the streets of Paris and wonders into the forest In the forest he finds a talking cat Sasha and the cat make their way through the mist until they come upon a circus tent They join the Misty Circus The circus master sends them on a journey to a land of witches where they meet a young blind witch They convince her to join the circus as well This was a charming little book Very short, but with lovely illustrations It reminded me of the [...]


    • 1.5I feel like the illustration style in this book is a bit overdone these days, but Frances does a beautiful job anyway However, the writing is dreadful Normally I d blame the translation, but I think this is another case of talented people thinking that if they re good at one thing art , they must be good at everything writing.Although this is labelled Juvenile Fiction, the vocabulary lack of context clues makes it totally inappropriate for kids I feel like maybe the publishers only labeled it [...]


    • I have to say the cover art is what got me to pick up the book The story, not so much It felt like the start of a story and not a complete story The orphan finds a new home with a circus in the woods and makes some new friends but we never see how he lives in the circus and the ringmaster wizard gives him shelter but not much info If you like sad emo looking art then this is the book for you The overall quality of the art is great but picture after picture of sad red rimmed eyed children does te [...]


    • First the good the art style in this volume is beautiful, though somewhat creepy and dark, which actually goes perfectly with the nature of the story However, the story itself is awkwardly written It seems to be aimed at kids, but the vocabulary used is not going to be remotely understood by its target audience Plus the inclusion of poetry in several different languages is an odd choice as well Great as a collectible for people who enjoy a specific art style, but not so hot if you actually want [...]


    • Interesting art style Read it in about 20 minutes while standing in the aisle at Forbidden Planet The androgynous look of the boy which is specifically stated in the text, if it wasn t obvious from the illustrations was a little odd and felt unnecessary in terms of furthering the plot The only reason I kept reading it really was because I wanted to know what happened to the talking cat, Josh LeChat how unoriginal a name


    • This is a heartwarming story of a young boy finding a place to belong with magic and the circus Sasha finds a place to call home This is a beautiful book and it has stunningly beautiful book illustrations For me the combination of the two made this a must read I will be buying this book as soon as it is available


    • A fabulous collection of beautiful illustrations with a story added to it It is probably best suited for middle grade readers The story does fit with the illustrations, but I find the illustrations so powerful that the story is a secondary factor I would purchase this book for the illustrations alone.


    • 4 Stars This book is exquisite Each page is fully illustrated, but it much than just another picture book Sasha is a beautiful boy His family dies and he runs away to join the circus This is actually two stories originally published as comic books They don t have the feel of a comic book, which will help it appeal to people.


    • Yet another beautiful and heartbreaking gothic fairytale from the amazing hands of artiste extraordinaire, Miss Victoria Frances I don t have much to say about Misty Circus except that I wish volume 2 got translated faster


    • while this book is juvenile literature it is something all adults with a penchant for fantasy should read at least once the imagery of the words and the artwork are nothing short of magical this is one book that will remain in my kindle library.



    • The illustrations are lovely Unfortunately the story is flat and not really developed Probably the language suffered in translation as it felt strange and stiff.
