PIP-SQUEAK: AN ANTI-BULLYING MAGIC SHOW

Back By Popular Demand! Because of his small size as a child, magician and comedian Tony Brent was bullied in the cafeteria, the gym, on the playground, and nearly everywhere no adults were present. Now using comedy, amazing magic tricks, juggling, and a coat-rack loaded with costumes, Tony gently and humorously teaches children how to cope with being bullied. In addition, children learn to recognize the signs of bullying and whether or not they themselves might be guilty of bullying.
