Synopsis

Big Magic for Little Hands 25 Astounding Tricks for Young Magicians by Workman Publishing

Kids love magic. They love to see it, and they love to do it. Enter Joshua Jay, who started doing magic when he was 7 and was named champion at the World Magic Seminar (the Olympics of magic) by the time he was 16. These are tricks that require little prep time and dexterity yet are guaranteed to deliver a big payoff. The large format, oversized ext, and black-and-white vintage-style illustrations make Big Magic particularly easy to follow and kid-friendly. Here's how to levitate your sibling several feet off a bed. Escape Houdini-like from tightly bound ropes. There are also impromptu effects that can be performed anytime, anywhere, like Spook-Key, in which an antique key mysteriously rotates in your hand. Each easy-to-perform feat is clearly illustrated with step-by-step drawings and accompanied by insider tips. Joshua Jay is a master who guides his apprentices through every aspect of the magician's art, from the first step - taking the Magician's Oath - to how to minimize nervousness (Rule #1: Rehearse. A lot).

About the Author

In 1998, when Joshua was still a teenager, he was crowned champion at the World Magic Seminar (the Olympics of the magic world) in Las Vegas. Joshua Jay is one of America's finest young magicians, says Richard Kaufman, editor of Genii, the Conjuror's Magazine. For 12 years he was the monthly columnist for Magic, the world's largest magazine for magicians, he's headlined at the prestigious Magic Castle in Hollywood, is a magic consultant for several multi-national toy manufacturers (most recently for Marvel Comics), and has helped design many of the magic sets on toy store shelves. In 2012, he consulted and developed a commercial spot for HBO, using sleight of hand to promote Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire. Most recently, he was named the 2012 Magician of the Year by the Society of American Magicians.
