Squid Kid the Magnificent

(3) PS Illustrated by Luke LaMarca. "I am the...Master of Illusion!" A top-hatted squid presents a series of tricks; each one (e.g., "behold: the cuttlefish has turned to gold!") is denounced by his sister ("You KNOW that is not magic. Cuttlefish change colors ALL THE TIME"). Fish facts, squabbling siblings, gag-revealing gatefolds in bracing colors, a riotous incantation ("Smelly yellow jellyfish!")--the combination is magic.
