The Tinklers Three - A Very Good Idea (Part 1 & 2)

Meet the Tinklers - Marcus 8 years (loves cheese and pineapple pancakes), Mila 10 years (does arm exercises so she can learn to fly), and Turtle 3 years (wants to a be a shark when she grows up).

Not your average children, they live alone whilst their parents perform in a travelling circus.  Marcus and Mila Tinkler are VERY good at climbing.  But can they go from their house to the town clock tower without once touching the ground?  It will probably be hard.  It will probably be dangerous. And almost certainly dirty.  Storyteller Emily Taheny reads the first book in this incredibly entertaining series from Meredith Badger - a story that is positively bursting with very good ideas!

(Please Note: This story is in two parts, see below for Part 2)
