The world's greatest and most-celebrated magicians, conjurors and illusionists can make us believe the unbelievable, the impossible possible. But, of course, just like everybody else these conjurors had to start at a beginning. They too had to learn the simple (but effective) card tricks, the easy (but imaginative) coin tricks and the basic (but still mindboggling) sleight of hand tricks before advancing to more innovative and radical skills and techniques. Hey Presto! is a book full to the rafters with simple magic tricks, the perfect companion for a beginning as well as a wonderful gift book for those wishing to get into magic and are not sure how. The book contains over 40 card, coin and magic tricks for the beginner. If you want the ultimate introduction into the world of magic then, Hey Presto!, here it is! Word count: 15,000
