The plot details and age of the book don't quite match, but the red hair and incredible illustrations do. Could it be Mirette on the High Wire<http://www.amazon.com/Mirette-Highwire-Caldecott-Medal-Book/dp/0399221301>?

Hi! I have a patron looking for a book, this is all the patron was able to tell us:

"I'm looking for a children's book about a stranger with bright red hair who comes to town and is a trapeze artist by night. The illustrations are incredible but I have no information on the author or book title. She might have been a school teacher, and all of the illustrations are painted. It's around the same age as the dr seuss books."

Do any of you know what book this might be?
