The Circus Magic Storybook

by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

The Circus can also be a magical place, and in this version, the Magic Storybook tells the story of an exciting and surprising day at the circus. One of the characters even jumps out of the book to appear in an unexpected place.

Effect: As with all my Magic Storybook effects, the main attraction is a book filled with blank pages. When character cards are randomly chosen by members of the audience, the characters appear on a new page as the story unfolds page by page until the story ends.

What’s new to my Circus Storybook is the way the characters (and the story line) are chosen. Circus Cards containing pictures of the characters are sealed inside envelopes by members of the audience. Then the sealed envelopes are thoroughly mixed up so no one knows which is which or which is where. The envelopes are opened one by one, and the order in which they are opened determines the order of the story pages that appear simultaneously in the Circus Magic Storybook.

An optional effect during the reading of the story is the disappearance of one (or more) characters from the Circus Cards. They can show up in the most surprising places and then jump back to their cards again.

At the end, the book is rolled up and a stream of wrapped candies (or small toys) pours forth into the hands of your helpers. The book can be given to one of the helpers at the end, or donated to the school library, etc.

As with all my Storybook effects, you print out the books and cards with your own computer printer. Photo paper is recommended for some of the printing, but you can also use card stock and even plain paper. You make all the other necessary props yourself following instructions in the e-Book.

This e-Book uses a new concept that I call the Consecutive Force and a new variation based on a combination of old methods for acomplishing the force using the envelopes in combination with the Circus Cards.
