Children's LiteratureMagic tricks are intriguing and plenty of kids want to try their hand at being magicians. P.J. is no exception, and he is thrilled when his Dad brings home a magic kit. It had a wand, scarf, top hat and book and one of the most important messages in the book is the need for practice. P.J. paid attention and he did practice and felt confident enough to put on a magic show for his family. All the tricks worked, but after that no one really was interested in seeing him repeat any of his tricks. P.J. tried one more trick—he made himself disappear.
