"Mac King's Campfire Magic: 50 Amazing, Easy-to-Learn Tricks and Mind-Blowing Stunts" is a collection of more than 50 incredible magic tricks and illusions that can be performed while camping using "cards, string, pencils, and other stuff from your knapsack!" King's easy instructions are assisted by his comic sidekick, Lewis the Monkey, illustrated by Bill King who draws the syndicated comic strip "Mac King's Magic in a Minute." Many jolly times are promised for all who undertake the implementation of these fun magic tricks. A snappy introduction by famed comedy team Penn & Teller presents the following advice: "If you can find a friend to study this book with, You'll be able to help each other. You can take turns being magician and audience. You can catch each other's mistakes and practice together. Take it from Penn & Teller in their Foreword to "Mac King's Campfire Magic": a magic partner is a good things to have (p. 6)." In ten easily accessible chapters, "Mac King's Campfire Magic" presents the basics of countless simple magic routines that kids can learn and use to entertain. Magic practice can have a good influence on self esteem when used in this way. Like all good scouts, the motto of Mac King and Lewis is "Be prepared!" That includes something like be prepared to have fun!

I've known of Mac King for many years. He's a pal and a colleague. Any one who has sense and has gone to Las Vegas in the last decade has been held spellbound by his show at Harrah's. So, what a welcome addition to magic literature by the King family ! The illustrations are charming, the concept unique and the magic exceptional. I think you'll howl in delight at the great job of educational entertainment that is Campfire Magic. Bravo...Mac Makes Magic again...

As a scout leader and a former amateur magician myself, I wanted some ideas for things we can do on campouts and various scouting programs. I was fortunate to see Mr. Kings Las Vegas show 12 years ago and got another of his book autographed at that time. This one has easy and fun activities that are sure to brighten the campfire events.
