Toby runs away from home to join the circus, convinced that his family doesn’t want him. This confusion is cleared up by story’s end, but in the meantime, he lives a kid’s fantasy: inhabiting a colorful, alternative world, becoming a circus acrobat, even befriending a lovable chimp, “Mr. Stubbs.”Versatile kid star Kevin Corcoran shines in this heartwarming adventure story.
