Young magicians can hone their card trick craft with this amply illustrated handbook, part of the Magic Handbook series. Concise instructions and close-up illustrations dictate how to execute all 13 ruses, which are ordered from easiest to most difficult. Throughout, readers can learn skills like “stacking the deck” and “card peeking.” Information about Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin, “the father of modern magic,” as well as popular magicians like Criss Angel and David Copperfield, should motivate the serious magician-in-training. Also available: Coin and Rope Tricks , Mind Tricks , and Sleight of Hand . Ages 8–up. (Nov.)
