This is a great magic book, and amazes a lot of kids who haven't already seen it. I would recommend people to buy this for their kids show like mine, but you have to tell people how it works, its just too clever!

In each show I do this about five or six times, and make sure the kids have seen it enough to remember it forever. This makes me memorable.

Easy to do! - 7.3/10

Hey, Coloring Book is awesome, and the reactions from kids and adults is always fantastic. I had a good idea on it, too. Three coloring books and you do a three card monte style trick with them asking the kids to guess which coloring book is the coloured in book. All the the two other books are always shown un-coloured. if you see what I mean.

You have the control over which will be blank or colored. By using the gimmick in the same way. I think this is a very good idea of mine. It may be useful for trix clown to recover the book, though, as I have found kids know the trick when they see the cover of the magic theatre show.

I have been doing kids shows for a while now through my mum's work, and the kids know the sponge balls a bit, too.

Good luck.

Cardmanips2004,

I like the idea of the three coloring book monte so to speak. I now have a new way to use an old trick.

Thanks.

Chris

If it's so clever why do you tell them how it works?

Cody Fisher has a marketed effect called Three Kid Monte with CD of music five mask coloring books. It also in his out-of-print book Required Reading.

It is great because you can make the routine last as long as you like.
