Written by a professional juggler, this guide teaches the basic techniques of juggling. Learning starts with rolled-up scarves and finishes with under-the-leg and behind-the-back throws. The colour photographs illustrate clearly every step.

Grade 4-7-A basic introduction to juggling. Beginning with a tossing move using one scarf, the tricks progress to two-person passes with several balls. Other routines include juggling rings and clubs, a special "neck catch" trick, and an "eat-an-apple-while-juggling" move. Brightly colored arrows are placed on top of the full-color photographs to indicate the path that the objects travel, both in hand and in the air. A welcome supplement to Nancy Temple and Rande Aronson's Juggling Is for Me (Lerner, 1986), Charles Meyer's How to Be a Juggler (McKay, 1977), and Caroline Arnold's Juggler (Clarion, 1988; o.p.).
