【Product Information】

‘A writer of comic genius – he has something of Roald Dahl’s magic, but more heart’ – Sunday Telegraph

Budding magicians everywhere, prepare to be dazzled and astounded by the laugh-out-loud adventure –The Wonder Brothers! Written by multi-award-winning author Frank Cottrell-Boyce, illustrated throughout by Steven Lenton.

It’s . . . SHOW TIME!

Drum roll please for Nathan (that’s me) and Middy (that’s her). We are . . . The Wonder Brothers!

Cousins Middy and Nathan love magic, the on-stage, cape-swirling, bunny-out-of-a-hat kind. So, when the famous Blackpool Tower dramatically vanishes the night of the Big Switch-On, showman Nathan announces live on TV that they will magic it back home.

With a stick of rock, a spangly cape, and a bit of misdirection, they end up lost in Las Vegas, home to the grand master of illusion, and magic legend, Perplexion. But, with a great illusionist, comes great mystery – and , in Las Vegas, nothing is as it seems . . .

This book is funny, surprising and full of the wisdom behind the principles of conjuring, including misdirection, secret-keeping, awakening love and hope in the audience. It’s so ingenious and entertaining it makes you wonder how on earth Frank Cottrell-Boyce does it. ― The Sunday Times

The Wonder Brothers is comedy gold . . . Cottrell-Boyce is an enchanter himself, and any story by him is guaranteed to get 9+ readers feverishly turning the pages. ― The New Statesman

A laugh-out-loud writer ― Guardian

Frank Cottrell-Boyce’s stories make you laugh and cry. He’s the real deal for children of eight and over — Amanda Craig ― Guardian
