This guide for kids who want to astound friends and family offers information on how to perform more than 100 tricks in step-by-step photographic sequences. The book is organized by theme, and as well as the more traditional sleight-of-hand tricks, includes "mind magic" (mathematical tricks, etc.) a form of magic that has the appeal of requiring less practice and no manual dexterity! Lots of hints and tips are included with sections on performance, stage tricks, costume and props. There are also anecdotes about famous magicians, and snippets of magic history.
