Have you ever noticed a duck gliding across a pond? It looks so relaxed, like it's just hanging out, enjoying its day. But what you don't see is that the duck has to paddle like crazy under the surface of the water. That's what magicians do: paddle like crazy under the surface.
Welcome to the wonderful world of magic. Are you ready for a world of intrigue and secrets?
For this is the completely true, not-at-all-made-up story of how ten-year-old Nick discovered magic - from his very first coin trick to the encounter with a mysterious girl called Trixie who changed his life forever.
There may be some stretching of the truth, a little time travel, quite a few baddies and heroes, all mixed with heaps of humour, heart, magic tricks and adventure.
