The Young Magicians and the Thieves' Almanac

On a London street, four unlikely friends stand before the blue door of the Magic Circle conjuring club. Alex doesn’t say much, and once jumped when handed a satsuma. But wow – is he amazing with a deck of cards. Zack is one of the best pickpockets in the country. But unlike most thieves, he always puts things back. Sophie once convinced her Brown Owl that all the other Brownies were jellyfish, thanks to her nifty hypnosis skills. Jonny – possibly the tallest boy in the universe – mixes science and magic with crazy results. BOOM! SPLAT! POW! So there you have it. Four young magicians. A search for a secret book. A set of impossible crimes. Oh yes – and a flock of very confused pigeons. Who said magic is only about pulling rabbits out of hats?
