9780989038836: As If by Magic: Revised Edition

As If by Magic is the delightful story of a little girl named Patti, who enjoys entertaining people and making them laugh. When her fifth-grade teacher goes around the classroom asking each child what he or she wants to be when they grow up, everyone knows right away—everyone but Patti, that is. Patti is embarrassed when all of her friends say they want to be doctors or lawyers, and she can’t think of anything she feels is as important. Finally, she says she wants to be a magician. After a little research and encouragement, she decides to pursue her goal. Find out how Patti finally realizes her dream—and enjoy the magic tricks and jokes along the way.

Patti’s adventures make a very funny and inspiring story for children of all ages, and she hopes to convince everyone to feel good about what they do in their lives and share those good feelings with others.

As If by Magic contains some good jokes that are easy for children to remember and even describes a few of Patti’s magic tricks that, with a little practice, can be accomplished very easily by young readers. Best of all, many of the magic tricks in Patti’s book can be performed by using items found around the house.

Children will be so curious to see what she pulls out of her hat next that they will not be able to put Patti’s story down till the very end.

Children of all ages will have fun reading this book, especially those in second grade and up.

About the Author:

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Patti Newman went straight into show biz after finishing high school. In addition to being a clown at children’s birthday parties, she’s been a TV weather girl, had bit parts in several movies and some commercials, and played the lead in numerous stage plays, including Star Spangled Girl, California Suite, Last of the Red Hot Lovers, and Damn Yankees. When not working as a clown and delivering singing telegrams, Patti entertained at convalescent homes all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Patti is now a senior citizen and lives in San Rafael, California, and is so happy to be realizing a dream, putting her book out for children everywhere.

Review:

"The book is instantly delightful! As you read through the life of this little girl named Patti you realize that this is most every person's life. However, Patti has one thing many of us need to find, an eternal charm and magical power that is unscathed. It captivates the naivety that we all muster up from time-to-time. Her sheer determination and the inspiration she creates is delightful. Maybe Patti's story will inspire you to become a clown." -Gina Pandiani, MA
