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.
