Alexander Calder (nicknamed “Sandy”) was an American artist in the early 1900s. He is best known for making mobiles. He is also famous for making a miniature circus out of wire and bits of metal and string. This book is the story of Mr. Calder and his circus. The circus figures were tiny mechanical toys that used springs and string and air to move. Mr. Calder carried the little circus around in suitcases and would unload all of the pieces and perform the circus himself – kind of like a puppet show. You can watch the video below and see the real Mr. Calder performing his circus show. Remember that each of those circus figures he made out of bits of trash. Now that’s an artist – making a work of art out of trash! In the video, the circus pieces balance and move and do exactly what he wants them to do – and they look like what they are supposed to look like too…the lion, the trapeze artist, the elephant. Watch the horse rider figure flip in the air and land balanced on the horse – how did he do that? Amazing!
