The Trick Summary

Read On - The Trick by Keith Gray

Eric, are you ready to travel to a place you've never been before? Mathew Masters asked, loud enough for the whole audience to hear. Are you ready to do something truly magical? Are you ready, Eric, to vanish not somewhere, but Elsewhere?

Where do you go when you disappear? Or, rather, when you are 'disappeared'. Eric is about to find out when a school trip to a magic show takes an unexpected turn.

This playful story mixes the mundane and the fantastical, as Eric is given an amazing choice: to go back to his old life of school, his so-called mates and being kept awake by his baby sister, or to take a step into the unknown.

The Trick Reviews

'Students loved the theme of magic and all had an opinion about the story. We have been learning about sub-text so this story was ideal to read and allowed the students to use their new skills really well. An appealing book with good, extending vocabulary.'

Fiona Dyson, Southfields Academy, on The Trick by Keith Gray
