If you have any of Edwin's other books than you will know how brilliant they are.
This book is no different. It's full of Tricks and ideas to suit everyone. It contains Silk, rope, childrens etc many of which were actually sold by Supreme Magic Co.
No pipe dreams here, Just practical magic.
All with clear descriptions and drawings.
It really is a book of surprises.

Wow! I loved this book from the first time I picked it up. Edwin gives you some very useable tricks for children shows. You could easily design several shows just from this one book. Many of these tricks require some construction, but I found none of the tricks too difficult to build for a do it yourselfer. To buy all the tricks in here, it could cost thousands. I own the Kid Stuff volumes, many of David Ginn's books, and children's magic books but I probably use this one book the most. A great deal!
