"A wealth of information about how to be a working performer... There is a lot in this book, but you will go through it easily because the book is funny. It is written for you the adult, not for kids, and Green's humor is directed to you in a way that will keep you reading."—Jim Kleefeld, M-U-M Magazine review
"As fun to read as it was informative and inspirational. Highly recommended!"—Skip Way, Kidabra Journal review
"Scott Green is a great new voice in magic for children. I enjoyed reading this book and I know you will too."—From the Foreword by David Kaye
“Scott Green is forging new territory in the world of children’s entertainment. I don’t care if you’re a beginner or a lifelong pro, you will learn from Scott’s approach to the art form. You’ll start applying his ideas to your very next show (if not, you’re just plain crazy).”—Christopher T. Magician
PERFECT FOR LIBRARIES AND SCHOOL READING ASSEMBLIES
It's a mentalism routine kids love, using six volunteers! Packs tiny, plays HUGE! Super simple to perform! Bring a classic series of children's books to life while determining which volunteer has secretly taken the red crayon.
You get the specially printed book and gimmicked crayons, as well as the name tags.
SOMETHING COMPLETELY NEW FOR THE COLORING BOOK CONCEPT - one that even fools children who know the usual coloring book prop. A broccoli catalog becomes a magic catalog, but only for one audience member. Interactive with a knock-out twist ending.
The best rabbit puppet routine - get 10 minutes of hysterical interaction the adults love as much as the kids. Includes everything you need, so you'll get a lot of fun stuff.
Cards? For kids? Yes! This great routine is perfect for children 8 and older—and adults!
A law book seems to guide you step-by-step through a very funny process wherein a volunteer chooses a card (you never need to touch the deck) and, by law, you are unable to find it in increasingly funny ways.
In the end, every page of the book has the selected card. The prop is cleverly designed to hide the patter, which means you don't even have to memorize anything.
