- "Roll up! It's the circus!"
Amazing Acts is a rhyming magazine story.
Edward cannot believe his eyes when he sees an extremely tall man and thinks he must be a giant. Then, Edward notices a girl walking in thin air. Nearby, a little boy has his toy plane stuck up in a tree. Suddenly, a girl comes along and, balancing on top of others, manages to reach the plane easily. Edward has met some very strange and amazing people.
The next day, it all becomes clear when Edward spots a big top in the field. Inside the circus tent, Edward sees all of the people he saw yesterday including the high-wire walker and the acrobats.
