"Youngsters will find reading smooth sailing and look forward to future escapades." --Kirkus Reviews

For many years, Sir Sidney's Circus has traveled by train. But one day a letter arrives from Miss Flora Endora Eliza LaBuena LaPasta inviting the circus to travel aboard the SS Spaghetti. Who can resist? The Spaghetti is a floating palace of elegance and entertainment. There's only one problem: Miss LaPasta doesn't want Barnabas Brambles to come aboard, because she's heard he's the meanest man alive. Lucky for Barnabas Brambles, his boss is Sir Sidney, the nicest man alive. Sir Sidney insists the entire circus, including Barnabas Brambles, accept the invitation. But Leo doesn't like water. Elsa's never been swimming. The Famous Flying Banana Brothers have no idea where they'll put their trapeze. And what's that large object up ahead in the water?
