    History of magic told in 8 chapters, from ancient Egypt to modern day magician David Blaine. The author explains how magicians have used sleight of hand, mirrors or even assistants to pull off their stunts. At the end of each chapter the author explains a trick and how to pull it off. There is a suggested reading list, and some websites for further investigation. The author offer an intriguing look at the hocus pocus that we have wondered about.

    I think this is aimed at upper elementary, but I think it's better suited for middle school. Problem is, the magic tricks explained are a little simple for any middle school magic enthusiast. So, I'm a little torn. Good for the history of magic info though!

    This entertaining history of magicians through the ages includes directions for eight basic magic "tricks," and is aimed at 10-11 year olds. (Engaging and informative for everyone interested in magic and magicians)

    The information is haphazardly thrown together and does not contain diagrams for some of the magic tricks.

    Great children's book about magical history!

    Good history of magic. It lost me in the middle, but overall an easy sell for book talks
