A Forty-First Goosebumps book by R.L. Stine
Synopsis: Trick cards, floating scarves, disappearing doves. Tim Swanson loves magic tricks. Someday he wants to be a real magician. Just like his all-time favorite performer, Amaz-O. But then Tim goes to see Amaz-O’s show. And he finds out his idol is really just a total grump. That’s when Tim decides to steal the bag of tricks. Amaz-O’s bag of secret tricks. Scary tricks. Like the one with the multiplying red balls. And all those hissing snakes…
Oh boy… first of all I didn’t like that this book basically spoils a bunch of magicians tricks for kids. It just flatly tells you how a bunch of them are done. Way to take away the magic and illusions for kids stupidbutt!
Second of all, I HATED the kids in this story, whiny little kleptomaniac brats that are the most rude siblings ever. The nose thing his sister did annoyed the shit out of me, and his cocky little attitude was just awful. Maybe I was in a mood..
It was such a cheesy book and was not in the least bit ‘goosebumps-y’… the magician wasn’t scary or even slightly creepy or mystical and the little fluffy bunnies were definitely not thrilling in the least. I was quite disappointed by this book.. the twist ending wasn’t even interesting. It just didn’t make any sense. Moving on.
I rate this book
