Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Take one cup of magic and one cup of crafty skills, and what do you get? Fun! The Magic Book invites kids to create their very own magic act using household items and a bit of imagination. After an introduction about expert showmanship and the importance of practicing the "Magician's Code," kids will learn tricks from the Baffling Balloon that will never pop to a Wand that floats in midair. Classic gags like the disappearing handkerchief and the vanishing coin are sure showstoppers. And you can even make your little brother disappear! Well, with a little help from the "Bewildering Boxes," that is. Some tricks are fairly simple, while other may involve help from an adult. But every feature includes easy instructions, vibrant photos, and a fabulous layout. "Mind Reading Miracles" will enchant little Gypsies, and "Mathemagic" will wow even reluctant math students. Wizards everywhere will love the foaming potions and bubbling concoctions offered at the end of the book -- great for Halloween! Need a bit of magic on the go? Quick Tricks offers busy magicians an easy fix with "Bottoms Up" and the "Link-Up Trick." This spellbinding activity book is sure to inspire even the youngest magician. (Amy Barkat)
