During a recent interview I was asked: “What was my favorite book as a child?" I didn’t have to think too long about the answer. Two books came to mind almost immediately, and both ironically have the word “magic” in their titles.
The first one is Spooky Magic, a Scholastic book written by Larry Kettelkamp, first published in 1955. It’s filled with instructions and illustrations on how to do magic tricks for your family and friends.
