Book Description

America's premier female Illusionist, Lyn Dillies, adds another DIMENSION to her sparkling career: YOUR VOTE IS MAGIC!, the book based on the groundbreaking illusion she conjured up to deliver a powerful message to get out the vote. At a rally in New Bedford, Massachusetts before the 2008 Presidential election, Lyn produced a live elephant and a live donkey, (the two party mascots) "out of thin air!" The illusion impressively delivered the non-partisan message that YOUR VOTE IS MAGIC! and prompted a large voter registration.

In the book that TELLS ALL (Almost) . . . Lyn REVEALS just how important your vote really is!

On a personal basis, Lyn describes HOW and WHY she created the illusion, overcoming seemingly daunting obstacles.
Challenges are nothing new to Lyn. She is well known for imaginative, unique programs and illlusions. The book, YOUR VOTE IS MAGIC! emphasizes Lyn's personal philosophy: With enough determination, anything is possible.

YOUR VOTE IS MAGIC! contains many visuals that enrich the story, including photos of the animal "stars" and the preparations for the illusion. There are provocative quotes about voting from famous folk; whimsical political cartoons; and an absorbing review of the successful woman's suffrage movement.

As the title implies, it's truly a MAGICAL COMBINATION of illusion and reality and delivers a colorful, persuasive message to first-time voters. This book will be happily passed along to NEW GENERATIONS of voters as they begin their journey to responsible citizenship.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Your Vote Is Magic! by Lyn Dillies is a very charming and extremely relevant book as we are nearing the next big election in this country.  While the book mostly centers on the illusion Ms. Dillies created, it also provides a very interesting history of voting in the U.S., illustrated with great pictorial elements, and written in a very approachable style.  Highly recommended!"  - Reader Views

"A clever approach to promote the importance of voting among America's youth.  As Dillies encourages young readers to participate actively in our democracy, she provides a refreshing antidote to apathy and doubts about the political process that often dominate the headlines"  - Kirkus Reviews

"My vote is for Lyn Dillies, the author of a book so original - a fusion of illusion and reality - that it belongs on every voter's bookshelf."  - 8 Time Emmy Award-Winning Producer, Writer, Director Morton Silverstein

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible good read! March 26, 2013
Format:Paperback
This is certainly a very unusual book! It is totally entertaining from cover to cover. It is Lyn Dillie's story but yet it is somehow our story. It is a love story starting with her father, Calvin, buying Lyn a few pocket tricks when she was 12 to her father's love of politics and the freedom to vote. We witness Lyn's rise to become the leading female illusionist in the country and yet still have time for love of family and the importance of voting. There is a chapter on voting that everyone should read i.e. a history of voting and also a chapter on `how we vote'. Combining the two things: Magic & Voting, we read about the exciting task of producing a large elephant & a donkey (Democrat & Republican) in a spectacular show called "Your Vote is Magic". We witness the many grueling hours of practicing and her love & care of her co-stars: Abner (Donkey) & Emily (Elephant). This is a book for all ages to read. It would make a great gift as it contains plenty of photos and human interest. I loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this....now April 1, 2014
By Kayla
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a recipe of magic, illusion, hard work, setbacks, teamwork, perseverance, inspiration, passion, and a dash of wit. The author takes you on a year-long adventure of combining her life's work as a female illusionist with her father's legacy in educating the masses on the importance to vote. For anyone who has ever considered if their vote has value, this book proves that everyone's vote is magic!

I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an inspiring story, who has an interest in magic, and especially those approaching the age of making that voting decision. The book is a page-turner for sure (I, a normally slow reader, finished in about 4 hours). You'll love this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Magical Book September 7, 2012
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. I've seen big illusions performed with animals before, but I never had a clue as to what it takes to actually make it happen. This is a great book for animal lovers, as we discover the level of dedication, care and training it took to safely "magically" (and simultaneously!) produce and elephant and a donkey. Lyn's passion for magic, animals, family and the power of the American voter shine through on every page. I think this book will be especially powerful for younger readers who will find it inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your vote is magic by Lyn Dillies September 12, 2012
By Elena
Format:Paperback
Without revealing any trade secrets,Lyn has brought together two animals that symbolize the major parties in USA to create a unique illusion. She demonstrates how important it is to vote and subtly suggests that even two dissimilar species can accomplish remarkable things when there is patience, hard work and cooperation. A well written book with an excellent message for both politicians and voters!
