Circus Mirandus by Cassie Beasley
I listened to the audio version of this book and I enjoyed it very much. Ten year old Micah's grandfather, who is raising him, has told him stories about the magical Circus Mirandus for all of his life. Now grandfather Ephraim is very ill and great aunt Gertrudus is staying with them, and she does not believe in magic and is not a very nice person at all. Grandfather has sent a letter to the Circus Mirandus, asking the Man Who Bends Light for the miracle that he had offered to him when Ephraim was a 10 year old boy visiting the magical circus. Ephraim had saved his miracle and now he is asking for it, but it may not be possible. Now it is up to Micah to find the circus and help his grandfather to get his miracle. The story is sweet and cute and magical.
