A new kind of assembly program

Your students will think they’re watching a hysterical magic show.

You’ll know they’re watching a dynamic demonstration of the importance of books.

A librarian raves:


What a terrific performance!  I was hoping for a fun program, but you exceeded my expectations.

Your sense of humor was completely in sync with these six- to eleven-year-olds.  Your magic was amazing and funny, and totally relevant to an audience of kids.  The pace was perfect, the amount of repetition was just right, and the props and stage backdrop were completely professional and inspired a sense of awe.  The interactive components were fabulous and the kids who were chosen to be part of the act clearly had a wonderful time and will certainly have stories to tell their families and friends.

Best of all, of course, from the perspective of a children’s librarian, the strong thread of books, reading, and libraries throughout the program made me feel that I wasn’t just providing amusement, but that you were helping to reinforce our mission.

The program was tons of fun. You were easy to work with -- very accommodating and low maintenance.  I’ll be very happy to recommend you to other libraries; I have every confidence that they will find the experience to be a positive one and well worth their time and money.
