Emily Chauffe was ten years old when she first attended Magic Camp and began making balloon animals. She asked her mom to buy more books so she could expand her balloon twisting skills, but the books were made for adults, difficult to follow, and frustrating.
So she and her younger sister decided to make their own book, spending an entire summer making balloons and perfecting the explanations so that other kids could follow easily.
In 2011 she is still attending magic camp, has mastered juggling, invents her own rope tricks, and is working toward becoming a counselor.
Seven-year-old Elizabeth and ten-year-old Emily will show you how to make animals and other balloon projects with twists and grips that even small hands can do, all shown in full-color photographs.
Worried that your balloon might pop? This book warns you when the twisting just might burst your bubble!
