The Disappearing Magician (#4 in The Magic Shop series) by Kate Egan
Mike’s magic tricks have helped him learn how to focus, improve his reputation, and stand up for 
himself. But his new confidence is about to face its biggest challenge yet - the school talent 
show! Mike signs up immediately. But then he learns that Nora, his friend and trusted magician’s 
assistant, is suffering from a massive case of stage fright, and won’t be able to help him during 
the performance. As everything starts going wrong, Mike starts to wonder if he might need a magic trick to help him disappear! You don’t need to have read the other titles in the series to enjoy this month’s selection.
