Langton, Jane -- The Mysterious Circus

When I was very small, I read The Diamond in the Window, which was perfectly delightful. Shocked the hell out of me when I realized that the author is still writing sequels. I think I found this out too late, because this one is not very nifty. The cast has gotten larger, which is fine, but I think the target audience has gotten younger. For no obvious reason; the original kids are still around and several years older than when they started. Also, the Big Bad is thoroughly mundane.
