Magic by David Orme


Magic by David Orme

How do magicians cut a person in half, and then put them back together again? How can you read other people's minds? Is it magic, or is it for real? Then find out about one of the greatest magicians ever. And find out what to do if a witch puts a curse on you. Get the facts. Then read 'The Disappearance', a scary story about being a magician's assistant. It might cost you your life! Magic is part of the Trailblazers series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist in books for struggling and reluctant readers. Each book in the series has a non fiction and a fiction section. The fiction story is told in two formats - one with simple text, the other with 'speech bubble' illustrations. These two levels of entry offer the complete story at different reading levels, and the vocabulary of each book is carefully limited, with simple sentences to reinforce reading skills. Each book is on a strong, popular topic, with a colourful, attractive layout, combining fact and fiction. Magic is ideal for children aged 8 - 14 with a reading age of 6 - 7.
