Overview

Using everyday items found in most homes, aspiring young magicians can dazzle friends and family with this best-selling kid's guide to performing magic tricks. With the help of this book, young magicians can magically make things appear and disappear, make rubber bands seem to go through fingers, and make ghostly names appear on water tumblers. There are eight fun categories of magic ranging from All Wet to Amazingly Mysterious. Of course, there's Pick-A-Card--Any Card! Each activity includes step- by- step directions complete with hundreds of delightful illustrations. Each trick is followed by an explanation of the scientific or mathematic principles that make it work.
