CBBC have sent these four magicians into your schools.
They are some of the hottest magicians in the country.
And when they're not in your classrooms,
they're out in public thrilling families.
But right now here's a trick you can try on your mates.
All you'll need is two paperback books.
If you haven't got them already, go and get them now!
Go on, hurry!
In the meantime, Fergus will wait here for you.
You back? Ready? Good.
Do you know how to put these two books together
so they can't be pulled apart again?
Can you work it out?
Keep watching and you'll find out later in the show.
And James is about to test out his magic in the museum.
-Can I show you a trick?
This is Aysha and her mum.
They're about to see an awesome trick.
OK, we're going to try something with these two keys.
-So, er, which one d'you want? Point to a key.
Perfect, OK, hold your hand out flat like a table.
I'll put that key there, close your hand nice and tight
and hold it just there, that's perfect.
Now, all keys have a hole in them, OK? Why is that?
So you can put them on your things...
On key rings, exactly. Watch.
If you just take that hole and give it a squeeze.
Watch carefully, this is the key to the trick.
You can get the hole to come straight off the key.
And not only that, I can throw it invisibly
-all the way over to the key in your hand.
How did he do that? Can I get a rewind?
Watch. If you just take that hole and give it a squeeze...
He squeezed off the hole in the key.
Not only that, I can throw it invisibly...
And now he's thrown it into the other key!
That is one fun-key trick! Thank you very much.
Time to find out how to fool your friends in Tricks of the Trade.
Me and Fergus challenged you to put two paperback books together
so they can't be pulled apart.
Come on, have you worked it out? How many of you got it?
Maybe you think it works by gluing them together? Nah!
You use a stapler? No way!
Do you weld them together? Eh-ehrrr!
Go on, Fergus. Show us the secret.
You flick the pages of each book together.
It may take a while, so we've sped it up.
Once you've done that, see if you can pull them apart. Ready?
Go on, Fergus, give it your best shot.
It can't be done, can it, Fergus?
Did you get it?
Are you amazing already?
Now you can test your mates' strength in the playground.
This is Adam, Tom and Jack.
They have no idea they're about to star in their own magic show.
-Did you recognise me when I came up to you, lads?
Yes is the answer! I am quite famous but nobody knows about it yet.
In fact, I'm so famous I've had to start signing autographs,
and I get my pictures taken at a little photo booth.
The last lot I had taken wasn't very good
because that chair that you sit on kept falling up and down, so all
the pictures are in the wrong place, so I can't sign this photo.
So I thought I should get somebody else to sign it.
Could you do me a favour?
Just sign your name just on this little white bit above my head?
I don't want you to sign on my face because that's very delicate, that.
Wonderful. What we've got there is something very, very rare.
It's my picture all in the wrong place with Dave's signature on it.
Something amazing's about to happen. Keep watching that photo.
What we're going to do now
is try and make the picture look a little bit better,
so the way we're going to do that is I'm going to fold it here, like so.
I'll give it a little tear.
There. Starting to look a little bit better but not quite right.
And if I take it again and...
Then, ooh! Then fold this one. Ha-ha!
That photo's well and truly ripped to pieces
but some top-notch magic's developing.
I've seen what magicians do when you get in this position.
What you do is you blow on them like this.
Then you give it a little squeeze.
-And, Dave, is that still your signature?
That is Dave's signature, look. And now the picture...
Whoa, told you! Can I get a rewind?
That trick was picture perfect.
Just, yeah, I don't know how it happened.
I don't know how he does it.
