Well, it took a month, but the book arrived today. I've only glanced through it, but it looks extremely promising. There's been a lot of talk in this forum about what tricks to do for kids' shows; I'd say if you just mastered 10 percent of the nearly 60 tricks in this book, you would have a very solid show. The contributors are some of the biggest names in children's magic; one trick per magician. Each routine has either an illustration or a photograph.

Since David Kaye (Silly Billy) is the one who first notified us about the book, and I bought it largely on his recommendation, I wanted to see what he contributed. I was happy to see it was his take an a trick I currently do--What's Next? I only do the trick for ages 7 and older now, but I can easily see using David's approach and making it a trick that even 4 and 5 year olds would enjoy.

Besides David, there are routines by a lot of folk who are regular contributors to this forum, and some, like Ali Bongo, who live on in memory--and whose contribution should be treasured.

I think I'm going to be very satisfied with this book. Now I need to get busy and start going through it in detail. Thanks, David, for recommending it.

I just got my book. It was well worth the wait. It took about a month to arrive. Ir has an interesting comedy balloon bit where you inflate a balloon with your ear. A great magic drawing board routine. I just got the book so I need to read more of it before I can review it but so far it looks great.

Interesting comment about the price. By today's conversion, 30 GBP = 48 USD. And at Hank Lee's, Seriously Silly goes for 50 USD.

Looks about right to me.

Thank you. Glad you like Seriously Silly. Yes, that's me. David Kaye = Silly Billy

And I am glad people are ordering this new book. It's full of great, professional routines.

It wont be available from any US dealer or anyone other than Practical Magic. This is to make sure the profits from the book go to the charity. It is not a "practical" a method of distribution, but it makes sense as far as getting the money to charity.

Well the distributer could prepay the 'charity payment'........ how do you think H.L. would respond to that proposition?
