KIRKUS REVIEW

At first glance, readers may be misled into believing that a few simple props mean presto-simple magic. At second glance, they will realize that tricks with newspapers, magazines, tissue paper, paper cups, cardboard boxes and tubes require a good deal of manual dexterity, a quick eye and a talent for following complex directions. Those who fulfill these qualifications may fill many hours fooling family and friends with lucky money, hippety hop eggs, molten rainbows, supermarket sorcery, magical paper shows and in general earning a junior Houdini reputation. Katherine Wood's illustrations have not as yet been seen -- but they should diagram every step of the way. Magic With Paper is recommended to a more limited audience than Bill Severn's more general books on the subject.
