My Magic Storybook is all about
Super Heroes, but there is no reason why you can't make a Magic
Storybook about almost anything; Animals, Clowns, Cartoon
Characters, Robots, and so on. One thing the Magic Storybook is
NOT; it is NOT the coloring book in another disguise. The effect
and the method of operation are completely different.
Effect: The magician shows a Storybook, with every page blank.
He then shows some playing cards. They could be animal cards,
circus cards, or in our case, Super Hero cards. Each card has a
picture of a different Super Hero on it. The deck is given to
someone to shuffle and then it is placed in an envelope that
allows only one card to be removed at a time.
A card is removed from the envelope and shown to be, for example,
Spiderman. The Storybook is flipped open and only one page has a
picture with text. The story has begun! The magician reads the
story that starts with the picture of Spiderman. When he comes to
the end of the text, another card is drawn. Lets say it is
Batman. Suddenly another page appears in the storybook. The story
continues, telling how Spiderman teamed up with Batman to solve a
mystery. According to the story, one of the super heroes is
missing, but the page ends there. So another card is drawn and it
is, for example, an Ironman card. When the book is opened again,
a new page has appeared and the story continues. Ironman is the
missing super hero and Batman and Spiderman need help to find
And so it goes. Each time a new card is pulled from the box, the
super hero appears in the book and the story includes each super
hero in the manner determined by the draw of the cards.
At the end of the story, the last card drawn is the THE
END card, and the last page of the book now has been
imprinted with a big The End..
Since you print up the book on your computer printer, you can, if
you wish, give the completed storybook away after reading the
story. You can also personalize the story by including the
birthday hero as one of the characters in the book.
As mentioned above, you can make this effect on a variety of
themes, so it is not just limited to super heroes. You make all
the cards yourself, plus the magic envelope, and the magic
Also, since you make this yourself, you can make the story come
out differently each time you perform it. For example, one time
you might start with Spiderman, and the next time Batman appears
in the story first.
