From the introduction by Edwin Hooper:
Stanton Carlisle is well-known for his many articles on mentalism which have appeared in The Magigram Magazine. Stanton is more than a mentalist, being a general all-round magical performer who has played practically every type of engagement - not only with mentalism but with magic, ranging from sophisticated Night Club dates to children's parties. At these parties, puppets have played their part.
We are delighted that Stanton has released some of his very excellent routines and bits of business for those children's entertainers who are thinking of adding a puppet or puppets to their program.
In the pages which follow you will find tested material: A silk production with a very pretty finish .... a card trick that's a bit different, a silk and card combination, a delightful routine incorporating a couple of slates with a cardboard or metal flap.
Especially though, you will find this book of value because of the hints and tips on the handling of the puppets. No matter how experienced a puppeteer you are, you are sure to find something of interest and value to you here.
