As we looked through the book we talked about the "rules" for Magicians; especially the "don't tell your secrets" rule. But, then Josiah, eight years old, said; "Well, magicians do not tell how they do their tricks unless they are Penn and Teller . . . then they have to 'tell', because they are Penn and 'Teller'!" He is a funny boy for sure!
At any rate, I'm happy to let you know about Make Your Own Magic Tricks today - and announce a giveaway as well!
