M.U.M. Magazine says –

I believe that every kid show magician will benefit from reading this book. David’s full-day workshop at the S.A.M. Convention was extremely popular. Now he shows a fine talent for writing and teaching the rest of us the elements of performing magic for today’s kids. This is a wonderful book. (Read the entire review here.)

Terry Herbert says –

“I have just read a book that in my humble opinion is one of the best books on entertaining children ever. This is a must read for anybody who entertains children whether experienced or novice and I cannot recommend it too highly.”

Richard Kaufman says –

“There is no book regarding the performance of magic for adults that is the equal of David Kaye’s Seriously Silly. The psychological insight the author has regarding his young audience is staggering. Seriously silly offers lessons in performance and psychology that every performer, whether working for children or adults, can use to greatly enhance their shows. I don’t publish many books these days, but I had no choice here: Seriously Silly is the best book ever written on how to perform magic effectively.”
