'A writer of comic genius - he has something of Roald Dahl's magic, but more heart' Sunday Telegraph

Budding magicians everywhere, prepare to be dazzled and astounded by the laugh-out-loud adventure - The Wonder Brothers! Written by multi-award-winning author Frank Cottrell-Boyce, illustrated throughout by Steven Lenton.

It's . . . SHOW TIME!

'Drum roll please for Nathan (that's me) and Middy (that's her). We are . . . The Wonder Brothers!'

Cousins Middy and Nathan love magic, the on-stage, cape-swirling, bunny-out-of-a-hat kind. So, when the famous Blackpool Tower dramatically vanishes the night of the Big 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, and magic legend, Perplexion. But, with a great illusionist, comes great mystery - and , in Las Vegas, nothing is as it seems . . .
