Magic is a word we use to describe something amazing, awe-inspiring, or spectaular. Truly great magic makes us believe in things we know can't be real-be it a death-defying escape or a simple sleight of hand.

In this exciting nonfiction narrative, HP Newquist explains how the world's most famous tricks were created, unlocking the secrets behind centuries of magic and illusion, from the oracles of ancient Egypt and the wizards of medieval Europe, to the exploits of Houdini and modern practitioners such as Criss Angel. With illustrations, photographs, and step-by-step instructions for eight classic magic tricks, this book is sure to keep readers spellbound.
