Back of book description:

Chipper only wants to make people laugh. So he packs up his things and joins the circus as a clown. Then he is embarrassed when he finds out he isn't good at it. Nobody thinks he's funny. Who ever heard of a clown in a pinstriped suit? So what will Chipper do? He turns to the older, more experienced clowns for some good advice. This story is about the benefits of asking the right people for help and not giving up when following a dream.

“A wonderful story to share with children to remind them that their dreams are valid and they should be followed...but sometimes we may have to work a wee bit harder than we expected.”
