As long as you can execute it correctly. If you say blank pages, and they are colored, it does not work.

If you say non colored, and a few pages show colored, it can be an issue. You need to be able to hold the book correctly and pan left and right.

I think it is acceptable for anyone under the age of 14, but targeted to those under 8 years of age

No worries. It was a simple matter to verify. Have a great day, Jim.



How can a magician verify that he (or she) is a magician when we all know that all magician’s lie Smile

I open my kids shows with the coloring book.

"Hey kids, raise your hand if you've ever seen the magic coloring book"......"Great, You'll be really good at this"

This takes away the value of saying "I know this one". Usually, almost all the kids raise their hand because
the ones who have never seen the trick think you are just asking if they've seen a coloring book.

I also tell the kids that I am using that trick to see who can follow directions and who can be quiet when it time to be quiet and loud when it's time to be loud.

It helps if you know that in advance you're dealing with someone who lies, cheats and steals for a living! But there are ways to prove that you use your cheating, stealing and lies for entertainment purposes and that's all we require.

As for the coloring book, try passing out the coloring book to the audience and let them find a picture they would like to have you color by magic. Then take back the book, vanish some crayons and turn the pages of the book they just handled from black and white line drawings to crayon colored drawings. For a finale, roll the book up and pour out the previously vanished crayons. They just sit there with their little mouths and eyes open wide with surprise... better than applause.

$895.00 plus postage. I don't work cheap! This is not rocket science, nor even Magi-tronics we are discussing. You get some coloring books from Dollar Tree or whatever your local Dollar Store is called. You get some crayons. You spend some time coloring in the books according to my directions. You do some cutting and pasting. You work out your routine and perhaps make some of the suggested complimentary props. You end up with a trick you can be proud of that no one else in the known universe has, and if anything happens to it, you know how to make it again. Priceless.

Hi Jim!

I just ordered the Coloring Book Manufacturing Instructions from you as I have wanted to make one of my own for a long time.

I just didn’t want to do it incorrectly.

Now, with your instructions, I will be able to do it correctly.

Thanks for making the instructions available to the rest of us at a reasonable price.

Hi Jim,
Can I order some of your plans now? I love building props myself (some Tommy Wonder influence there) but struggle working out the how. You have helped so many magicians, I understand beginners and exploiters would try to take advantage of you, I am not one of them. Thanks Rob Bradbury

I don't know if I'm going to order from you or not, but I really don't get this "attitude" from SOME of your customers!

The first line after the title is "Do it yourself magic for Built it myself magicians!"

How do you become confused by that?
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

I usually perform it for kids up to 6 years old. The older kids have often already seen it. You can also switch the gaffed book for an all-blank version at the end (or beginning) for examination.

If a person who claims to be a magician (especially a children's magician) can't prove (verify) in the wink of an eye that they are the real thing, I am happy to not sell them anything from The Magic Nook. I'd rather keep magic secrets to myself than get enormously rich at $5 per trick! Magicians who object to having to prove themselves as magicians aren't really magicians. For those who want to turn that around on me and say that I should first prove to them that I am a magician, I say... keep your money.
