Mark Worgan is a busy and successful full time professional magician in the UK, doing corporate and cruise work, but he built his career on the backbone of his early success in the demanding but rewarding field of children's entertainment.
In his new book he details the elements that made him successful. Subtitled "The Almost Definitive Guide to Becoming a Children's Entertainer. All the Questions You Need Answered including Detailed information on Games, Tricks, etc." the book is a compendium of information on this field. It includes a chapter of Mark's original children's routines, including a rabbit production, and there is listing of the other tricks he uses in his 45 minute and 2 hour shows, with an indication of the appropriate audience age for each effect.
A recent review in the Magic Circular Magazine said:
“Mark writes directly and honestly and his book is an excellent resource for the magician considering entering the children's magic market, as well as for established performers seeking new material and ideas.”
Keith Fields writes: "Both the beginner and the more experienced children's entertainer will benefit from Mark's book. If you are thinking of entertaining children read this book first! I wish this book was available 25 years ago when I started entertaining children!"
