Make some magic in this colorful, interactive picture book from the author/illustrator of the Hello, World board book series!

Do you know that you’re a magician? In this interactive book, use your fingers to perform all kinds of magic tricks. Tap a hat to make a bunny appear, recite a spell to make books bigger, say “Gone-zo!” to make a ship disappear, and much more. But beware: the clever magic tricks don’t always turn out the way you’d expect! 

Reminiscent of HervĂ© Tullet’s Press Here, kids—and adults!—are sure to want to read this book again and again as they perfect their magic skills.

A fantastic interactive book for kids. Lots of laughs, and imaginative magic are in store. Perfect for reading out loud, this book requires the use of magical words like "Abracadabra! and Shazam!", imaginative, fun participation. 

I wish I had, had this book back when I taught pre-school. It's perfect for preschool and kindergarten classrooms. This book is great for toddlers, through kindergarten age kids. Though I'll be honest, I read this with my elementary school aged daughter, and we both have fun reading it. 

We definitely recommend picking this book up!

This book would also make a great gift paired with a magic wand, and some playing cards. You can also have a fun interactive story time with this book, and a few magical wands, and a top hat.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
