THE TOO FAT SANTA (one of four different versions included in this package).
The magician shows a sheet of paper with a drawing of a very fat Santa Claus. Passing the paper behind his back while telling a story about Santa having trouble getting down a chimney on Christmas eve, the magician shrinks Santa to half size, then again to one-fourth the original size. But wait a minute! The paper has been folded (say the kids), so let us see the other side! The magician, after suitable byplay, does indeed show the backside. And it is a drawing of Santa's back. Unfolding the paper to its original size, then shows a final "Merry Christmas" message which takes up the entire opened page! How did he do that?
Other stories with matching pictures are:
* THE MAGICIAN'S DIET
* THE SHRINKING CARD and
* THE NIGHTMARE MONSTER
Each is suitable for different occasions.
