It downloaded to my Android tablet, which helped a bit, and it is better on my 1st gen Ipad, but this book will not download to my Win7 PC.
The font used in this book is a very elegant script, which, for me, is difficult to read so small. (I use eBooks as my sight is far from perfect).
This is a beautiful book which would have 50 stars, if it wasn't let down by Amazons poor software.
Even with these complaints BUY IT, you won't be disappointed with the book, even if you are with Amazons poor rendition.

The story is about a young boy named Sasha who has been abandoned by his parents. He ventures into the woods and befriends a black cat. Together they stumble upon the Misty Circus. As part of the Misty Circus they go on a number of adventures.
The illustrations throughout this book are absolutely stunning and beautiful. They all have a very beautiful gothic, sweet, and melancholy tone to them which matches the story perfectly. I really enjoyed looking at these beautiful and somewhat odd pictures.
The story is simple, sweet, and magical. The story has a gothic flare to it with deep dark woods and witches. The Misty Circus is a magical place. This book features two smaller stories. The first is about Sasha finding the Misty Circus. The second is about Sasha journeying to a land full of witches and befriending a lonely young witch. The story has a heavy French overtone to it, the poems are in French (with translation to English) and the pictures have a French flare to them.
These are stories that would be appropriate for all ages. Younger children might be a bit scared at the idea of Sasha's father abandoning him and also maybe a bit scared of the witches.
Overall I really really enjoyed this book. It has beautiful pictures and a gothically sweet story. Sasha is a young boy that is a bit different and finds his place in life at the Misty Circus. The friendship between him and his cat is touching as well. I highly recommend this to those who love fantasy graphic novels; although this is more of a picture book than a true graphic novel.
