A. C. Robat didn't know that he was a clown and wondered what he would be when he grew up. Now, in the second A. C. Robat book, after he realizes that he is a clown, he decides to go to circus. There, he thinks he is the best in his class and is quite the show-off. He dares to try new tricks which he most often messes up. But he does get his "cut up" degree.
A. C. Robat teaches children that it is ok to mess up and not to be afraid to try something.
