A book full of knowledge and know-how, Gotcha demystifies some age-old mysteries and shows kids that it's easy to be a master of illusion. Doubting Dave and the Mystery Hunters take readers behind the scenes of the world's oldest and coolest mysteries. Then they show kids how to re-create those mysteries to fool their friends. This interactive book is also full of interesting and bizarre background information on each mystery.
With step-by-step instructions, easy-to-find materials (and sometimes no materials at all) kids can:
- Hypnotize a friend
- Turn a pencil into gold
- Test their house for ghosts
- Make Bigfoot prints
- Make a fake UFO photo and video
- Make their own lake monster video
