Renowned magician/comedian Mac King presents more than 50 amazing tricks and astounding (and often hilarious) feats of illusion for kids ages 9 to 12?perfect for the campsite or the great indoors! In a book as lively and appealing as the magician himself, Mac King's Campfire Magic features dozens of easy-to-learn magic tricks and stunts, with a focus on feats that can be performed with rope, hats, bandannas, knives, coins, twigs, and anything else found around the campfire (or in the kitchen junk drawer). Mac's humorous, easy-to-follow instructions (as well as the antics of his sidekick, Lewis the Monkey) are brought to life by well-known illustrator Bill King, who also draws the widely syndicated comic strip 'Mac King's Magic in a Minute.'Readers will learn how to bake a cake in a cap; tie a knot with one hand; read their friends' minds; grow a plant?instantly; transform a dead twig into a leafy one; and much more! And as a bonus, two full-length magic acts (complete with patter) are included. With its durable binding and compact size, Mac King's Campfire Magic is the perfect field guide to entertaining friends and family, whether on the trail or in the living room.
