Ella is the star of the circus and a bit of a diva. When the circus train gets stuck in the rain, Ella is called upon to help. Resentful of being asked to perform manual labor, she decides to teach the circus a lesson by running away. The lesson to be learned is Ella's, however, when a farmer demands labor in payment for hay she has eaten. After a long, hard year of plowing, picking apples, mowing the lawn, raking leaves, and other chores, Ella hears the return of the circus train and makes a daring escape. Reunited with her friends, she willingly offers her help whenever it is needed, having learned the value of humility and cooperation. A funny, rhyming story with glorious pictures by Bill Peet.

This copy is an ex-library hardcover in very nice vintage condition. The pages show minimal wear, spine is strong, binding tight.
