Waterstones Says

Two diminutive magicians set out to retrieve the vanished Blackpool Tower and wind up in Las Vegas with a world-famous illusionist in this hilarious and heartwarming story from the author of Millions and Noah's Gold.

'Maybe you don't believe me. Maybe you don't believe in magic. I bet you will by the time you've heard what happened to us.'

Cousins Middy and Nathan love magic. The on-stage, cape-swirling, bunny-out-of-a-hat kind.

For Middy, it's all about patience and practice. She uses magic skills to help her out of tricky situations. Nathan is a show-off and a total danger magnet, he is drawn to the sensation, spectacle and audience. So when the famous Blackpool Tower dramatically vanishes the night of the Grand Lights 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, Perplexion, 'Legend of Magic'.

Full of tricks, twists and deceptions, the delightful Nathan and Middy will keep you guessing until the very end.
