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

Got your order and sent it off. Sorry about the "verification" thing, but we've been getting a lot of non-magicians and beginners looking just for secrets with no idea how to perform them and then wanting their money back when they discover (gasp!) that they actually have to build the props themselves.

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.
