Presto is a very talented magician. And his friend Monty is a very confident performer. So when they start a magic show at the carnival, things look good for the dazzling duo. But as their success grows, so does Monty’s head. Soon, he’s the one who’s always in the spotlight, and he’s becoming bossier and more demanding: “Hey, Presto! Get my hat!” “Presto! These bunnies don’t work.” “I need chocolate ice cream with extra sprinkles—and I need it NOW!” When Presto gets fed up and decides to leave, what will happen to the show? And more importantly, to their friendship?
Hey, Presto! is a delight: adorable characters, a fresh, appealing art style, spot-on humor, and a touch of magic on each spread.
