Harper has a musical gift. She can play any instrument she picks up, although she’s not sure that any single one of them feels like a true fit for her. She doesn’t know where her gift came from–or even where she came from. Five years ago, she floated down from the sky during the Fearsome Storm, holding a scarlet umbrella. But when she and her friends see a mysterious girl running on the clouds and discover a mysterious circus in the sky, they embark on an adventure that promises to reveal more secrets than one.
A cute, imaginative story, sequel to Harper and the Scarlet Umbrella, which reads with a similar tone to the Daisy Meadows Rainbow Magic series. The series might be a good next step for readers moving on from those smaller, more formulaic transition chapter books.
