About the Author
ZACHARY HYMAN is a Canadian professional hockey player with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He is the author of Hockey Hero and The Bambino and Me, two inspiring sports-themed picture books. The Magician's Secret is his third book. JOE BLUHM attended the Cleveland Institute of Art and from there went into the field of caricature and illustration, working at many theme parks. Training hundreds of artists from all around the world, Bluhm visited Tokyo, Canada, Germany and dozens of locations across the US before moving into animation in New York. He has worked with Virgin Media, FOX, Playhouse Disney, Ideocracy and Scholastic. His first book, REJECTS: The Extreme Art of Retail Caricature, has received much acclaim in the caricature, animation and illustration communities. In 2009, Bluhm relocated from New York to Shreveport, LA, to work as a storyboard artist for illustrator, writer and filmmaker William Joyce on his first personal project, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, which was published as a picture book in 2012. Currently Bluhm is a story developer and concept artist at Moonbot.
"The conversational tone draws the reader through the story. The remarkable art work by Joe Bluhm showcases the relationship between Charlie and his grandpa and transports the reader into each adventure, providing glimpses of how the imagination can make a dream a reality. . . . Any adult will be equally thrilled by the story, its rich language and the wonderful illustrations. . . . The Magician's Secret is a special way to share ideas between generations. Highly Recommended." --CM Magazine
