I'm Tricky Nick. The world's greatest magician.

This is my absolutely not-made-up story of magical greatness. Magic changed my life and it could change yours too.

I learnt my first trick when I was ten and now I'll teach it to you (plus a whole bunch more). You'll also meet Trixie, a magical mystery girl, and the strange B.U.M (Brotherhood of United Magicians), and find out other Top Secret Stuff I can't reveal just yet.

This tale is so incredible, so unbelievable, you'll swear I'm making it up. But you can trust me, I'm a magician ...

Author Information

Nicholas J. Johnson (aka Tricky Nick) loves doing the impossible.

Nicholas grew up in the circus, he really did become a professional magician by the time he was ten. (We told you it was a true story.) Today, Nicholas has gone on to become one of Australia's leading entertainers. Known as 'The Honest Con Man' Nicholas exposes the tricks behind the tricks; the crafty reasons why we're scammed, tricked and bamboozled.

He's revealed the secrets of deception on The Project, A Current Affair, Sunrise and TODAY as well as at countless schools, libraries and organisations. He is the host of the monthly magic show Sleight Night, as well as a regular performer at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe.

Nicholas is the author of two books for adults, Chasing the Ace (which was nominated for a Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction) and Fast and Loose.

Tricky Nick
is his first book for children.
