The easiest way to get LOTS of laughter and applause!
One of the most popular tricks we sell- because it's FUN and EASY EASY EASY! Great audience participation trick that uses one spectator- or a small crowd! So easy a child can do this one- as you can see in the demo video! Yet this is a favorite of professional magicians as well, because it is SO VISUAL!
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! For really small hands, please see the Pocket Coloring Book, which is the same trick but in a smaller 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!
History and Trivia:
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. That was the first book to reveal magicians' secrets.
