The Story of Nico and his Family

The Pires family have been circus performers for generations. The father is a magician, the uncle a tamer, the mother a tightrope walker, the daughter an equestrian, the grandfather a musician, the grandmother an acrobat… The Pires circus is just waiting for the youngest, Nico, to find his calling. But Nico hates the circus. Clowns don't make him laugh, and he doesn't like living in a caravan. The whole family is worried about him, until the day his cousin Mayumi gives him an unexpected present…
