Great audience participation trick for one spectator- or a small crowd! The popular Magic Coloring Book now comes in this easy to carry 4.25" x 5.5" compact pocket size. Perfect for walkaround work- this easily fits in your pocket!
The effect: You flip through the coloring book, showing normal coloring book type pages, outlined pictures in black and white, with a magic theme. The next time you flip- all the pictures are brightly colored! The third flip makes all the pages blank! Finally, flip through again and the pages are normal again.
Very, very easy, even for children to perform! And in a small, easy to handle size. Best of all, this trick can be repeated immediately- there is nothing to reset or fuss with. No skill required- it's all in the gimmicked book! If you can flip the pages of a book, you can do the trick!
Special thanks to our good friend, magician Brian Bence, for demonstrating this trick with us!
Very effective if you also use the Drawer Box to make several crayons disappear first, then flip the pages of the book to show that the colors of the crayons have magically transported themselves onto the pages.You could also use the Color Changing Wand to "transfer" color from the wand to the book, and back again.You could also use the Fantastik Wand. Show the book with black-outlined pictures, and wave the multicolored wand over the book. The wand changes to a black magician's wand, and the pages are now colored! Or you could use the Vanishing Crayons- make the crayons disappear and make the colors appear on the pages of the coloring book.
This is an old trick! The Magic Coloring Book trick was described in Reginald Scot's classic book on magic, The Discoverie of Witchcraft, written in 1584. It was he first book to reveal magicians' secrets.
