Professor Spellbinder has worked out a way to turn 24 giant blank cards into illustrations to accompany the familiar 1882 poem by Word Wizard Clement Clarke Moore. One by one, the cards magically come up with an illustration by Artist Wizard W.W. Denslow (1902) to accompany the recitation. The audience is encouraged to join in where they remember the words and soon we are all telling the story together. Since you print out and construct the magic cards yourself, you can make your own alterations and choices. You can also use the principle to illustrate or tell any story or poem. At the end, you can finish by transforming all the cards used into a huge banner, which in this case displays the final words "Happy Christmas to All and to All a Good Night!" The first part of the effect with the blank cards is found in The Wizards' Journal #30, and the ending is "Paper Blendos" from The Wizards' Journal #26. Special effects with puppet mice, stockings, sugarplums, milk and cookies and the like are suggested for use where appropriate.
