The Greatest Magician in the World

Publisher: Macmillan

Review

Elliot, grandson of The Amazing Dextrini, is mad about magic – the sleight-of-hand kind, rather than the wizards-and-wands one. He’s desperate to be a famous magician himself, and so when he accidentally opens a secret bookcase and finds his way into a secret room, he’s elated to find all of grandfather’s magical secrets.

Following a magic compass, Elliot goes looking for the Greatest Magician in the World at Cadabra’s Magic Shop. Hans Kuffs, the world’s greatest escapologist, directs him to another magician, Tremendo, but to no avail. Will Elliot ever find the Greatest Magician? Or is he closer than Elliot could ever have dreamed?

This large format hardback accompanies the sweet story about believing in yourself with a series of fantastic magic tricks. Readers can learn card tricks, counting tricks and other puzzles with everything that’s needed included in various ingenious slots, boxes and envelopes, engineered to provide an exciting book full of brilliant activities, as well as a story.
