I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. When I first started reading books on my nook Library I noticed that there are many free classics available. However the formatting is terrible and some are unreadable because of errors in the text. Therefore, I decided to start publishing quality classics that included chapter breaks, table of contents, linked chapters, and illustrations when available. Keep your eye out for more classics from us, QualityClassics.

Toby Tyler tells the story of a ten year-old orphan who runs away from home to join the traveling circus only to discover his new life isn’t all he thought it would be. The difference between the romance of the circus from the outside and the reality as seen from the inside is graphically depicted. There are new adventures experienced and friends made. Toby's new friend, Mr. Stubbs the chimpanzee, reinforces the consequences of what happens when one follows one's fantasy’s rather than good sense. Originailly published as a serial in a childrens magazine then as a book. The book was made into a 1960’s movie adaptation By Disney. Thirty original illustrations by W. A. Rogers.
