Bart King

Abracadabra ! Hocus-pocus! Allakazam! Happis crappis! Say it together now-magic! Take a peek inside the magician's secret wardrobe to discover the tricks of the trade, the tales of derring-do, and the people who made the magic happen.

Demystifying the mystical is the popular, raucous, ready-to-trick-his-own-mother Bart King! But what, you may ask, can Bart do? He can show the ways of the most secretive magicians in the world.

Bart King writes funny-and educational!-books for kids and immature adults. (His title The Big Book of Boy Stuff was once Amazon.com's top-selling children's book.) As a young lad, Bart discovered he could punch people into outer space. Sadly, he lost a lot of friends that way. Today, Bart isrecognized as one of the world's leading superhero experts. (And as a longtime middle school teacher, he is also highly sought after by supervillains!)
