About this title

Synopsis:

Readers of books on the subject of children's magic expect to find detailed accounts of tricks and routines. While Paths to Enchantment has plenty of these, it breaks exciting new ground by giving children's magicians and clowns a step-by-step system designed to help them discover their own creative talents and increase the intensity of entertainment in their performances.

The majority of children's entertainers are so obsessed with obtaining and trying out the latest innovation that they seldom search within themselves and discover what new ideas they can apply to props they already possess. One block to such personal invention is the lack of a systematic structure the performer can apply to the task, a foundation on which to develop entertaining ideas from the subconscious. Paths to Enchantment is believed to be the first cohesive attempt to analyze those aspects of a successful performance that give pleasure to children.

Malcolm Yaffe, a veteran of children's magic with more than thirty years' experience in the field, has identified and defined eleven essential techniques on which to build fresh and successful presentations for the tricks you already own. After explaining each technique, he illustrates how it is applied, using dozens of examples drawn from his professional repertoire, among which are several prize-winning routines and presentations.

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
