Amazing Magic
              Tricks Master Level

Comments: Children's book of magic. This is book four of a series, the others being Beginner Level, Apprentice Level, and Expert Level. This series is typical of most children's books of magic in that the amount of text that explains how to present the effects is very limited. Thus, the books end up being mosltly a series of tricks rather than a good introduction on performing magic. Also, these books are relatively short in comparison with similar books on the subject (each contains about 10 tricks). Photos are in color and very clear.
