Reviews from Jeff's 2011 Magic Around the World performances. 

"Jeff, I've known you forever (since 1998)and you have consistently provided exciting, fun, and informative programs.  I especially like your new program, Magic Around the World.  The facts you provided about each country are so interesting and it was amazing how you incorporated magical feats after the sound bites of information.  You're also so funny and children and parents enjoy your jokes.  Love how you roll with it even when one of your 'assistants' ran off on you in the middle of a trick.  Thanks for being on time to set-up, your professional demeanor, and your ability to wow the crowd each and every time.
-Bernadette Salgado, King County Library System

"You are such a wonder!  Magic Around the World was fabulous – it is always so wonderful to watch the adults at your programs.  They are truly just as amazed as the kids.  Many, many thanks to you for being one of the best featured performers we know!"
-Ellen Duffy, Youth Services Coordinator, Timberland Regional Library

"Many thanks again for helping to get the kids excited about reading!  So many parents have stopped me tonight to express their thanks. Your show was not only entertaining but very educational as well.  You have such a special way with kids Jeff!  Thanks for all your hard work!"
-Margaret Martin, Mercer Island Library

"Thanks for the wonderful program!  You are always my favorite person to kick off Summer Reading.  (Or to take to a school assembly.  Or to celebrate pretty much anything.)"
-Kalee Shearer, Lake Forest Park Library
