Description


Winner at the 2012 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards. A book overflowing with poetry and color, helping us to discover that we live within the most amazing magic show we could ever imagine.

Whether it be creating a rainbow out of different-colored handkerchiefs or filling up the sky with flying doves carrying playing cards, the feats carried out by a would-be magician engulf the pages of this entertaining book about quotidian magic. Although not really a magician, the main character imagines himself to be one, accomplishing impressive tricks such as changing night into day and back again. This amusing and colorful story helps children discover the magic of every day and perceive the world as a spectacular magic show in its own right.

I like magic so much that sometimes I pretend I'm a great magician and that I can do the most beautiful, amazing tricks in the world... I imagine that every morning I make a big silver coin disappear from the sky...

Praise For…


"The Great Magician of the World is an explosion of stylized illustrations and color. While Fran Nuno's words conjure magical ideas, illustrator Enrique Quevedo's artwork conjures pure wonder. Readers will spend far more time examining the images than the words, but the words are what ties everything together." —www.CrackingTheCover.com
