Francois the Fearless Circus Peg

Meet Francois, a not-so-common household peg who performs in the travelling circus. He may look brave as he works through his week of death-defying stunts, dizzying heights and hungry lions, but Francois the Fearless Circus Peg has a secret: he gets scared too!

Join Francois as he gulps down his fear and takes on the world with courage and some help from his friends. A story in rhyme for early childhood. For some fun and fearless activities and a teacher’s lesson plan with Francois, go to the Teachers and Craft Download pages on the site.
