Who says animals can t be magicians? Hee-Haw the donkey and Chester the field mouse live on a farm but dream of becoming master magicians. None of the other animals believe they can do it, but when the Great Zambini's magic chest falls off his train, they just might have a shot.
With the help of the master's most difficult illusions, Hee-Haw and Chester disguise themselves as performers and wow their friends. With practice and hard work, they learn that In order to become a magician, one must believe that magical things can happen. A delightful tale of fearless ambition, this story proves that appearances can be deceivingespecially when magic is involved. Magic is a perennially hot topic for childrenthe subtle themes of the power of advertising and the gullibility of the public make this one worth sharing. The vibrant acrylics with cheerful, cartoon-like characters provide added appeal. "Booklist"
