The version of "The Sponge Book" I have is not by Laurie Ireland, although it does have some Ireland effects in it. It was published by Magic Inc, in 1973 and was edited by Frank Marshall. Goshman features prominently.

With regard to C&B and sponges alone, you will need different types of sponges, so don't mix the effects. Best sponges for C&B are harder type bath sponge about 7/8" dia (depending on cups), and best for hand sponge magic are the very soft type, about 2" dia.

That's the same book. You are right. Laurie Ireland did not write it. His wife, Frances Ireland, edited it. She became Frances Marshall when she married Jay Marshall. It was originally published in 1960.

There is a sponge ball routine in there by Laurie Ireland, though, that is really excellent. It is called Big and Little Sponges. It's on page 15. The change from a little ball into a big one is quite dramatic.

Also, look into the Johnny Paul cups and balls video. He worked with sponge balls.
