The editors of OWL and Chickadee magazines have published another book called Magical fun. The contents includes five tricks: Show Time, Body Magic, Fortune Fun, Card Capers and Mind Magic. Each trick is easy to perform because it is well demonstrated by what one needs to prepare in advance. Both colour photographs and drawn illustrations enhance the under­standing for performing the tricks. Also, there are black boxes with perti­nent science information and five magic challenges spread throughout the book, with the answers to the challenges on the last page. Children from grade 3 up will enjoy trying some or all of the tricks.
