An apple a day

"I meant what I said, and I said what I meant...
An elephant's faithful----one hundred per cent!
~Theodor Seuss Geisel, Horton Hatches the Egg, 1940

This quote was at the beginning of a good book I just finished.  It's about the secrets and
happenings behind the scenes of the old train circuses of the 1920'a and 30's.  It's
a different world for those traveling with the circus.  Rosie the elephant in the book
will win your heart.  You will learn about the lives of the performers, roustabouts, and rubes.

The book is "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen
It is a #1 New York Times Bestseller!  Check it out...
