*Review* Tito the Magician by Guido van Genechten

Genre: Children's Illustrated
Published: August 9, 2016
Pages: 32


Manu, the magician at Circus Rondo, is fantastic. With a little magic powder, a wand, and a few words, he can pull amazing things out of his top hat. Tito, the little clown, would love to do that kind of magic. But when he tries with his own little brown hat, the magic doesn’t work at all. Maybe it’s because he’s uncertain and shy. What would happen if Tito were to ask Manu to show him how the trick really works?

An endearing picture book about magic and daring, for children aged 3 years and up.


I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a cute story about a kid who wants to do magic and gets a little bit of help from a real live magician. I like that the story doesn't give away the secret of magic and the bright, colorful illustrations.

I read this story to my five year old. She thought it was a good book. Her favorite part was when Tito pulled the white mouse out of the hat. She didn't like it when Tito didn't know how to do magic in the first place. 

5 out of 5 stars. - Katie
