  1. An independent young woman
  2. A mysterious young man
  3. An unlimited supply of black and white material
  4. An array of cats, candles, twigs and/or branches
  5. A complicated pre-destined agreement
  6. A house that both welcomes and confuses
  7. A circus train
  8. A brave young boy
  9. Courageous flame-haired twins
  10. A whole load of make-believe
  11. An assortment of jars of various sizes
  12. And one man who can make time tick

One whisk is also advised, although you should ask an adult for assistance and always put the lid on to prevent any magic escaping.

This my friends, is a list of the assorted wonders that you will find within the realms of Erin Morgenstern's fantastical new fairytale, The Night Circus. Summoning up characters from the 19th Century, Erin welcomes you to Le Cirque des Rêves. You will need good walking shoes and a torch to find your way back home. This travelling circus is only open at night, so if you want to visit it is advised you catch a kip at work or have an afternoon snooze. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the circus and can be seen cavorting in red scarves as the autumn leaves start to fall.

PS. Look out for the fortune-teller, she really is quite good!
