That's quite a list. Thank you for putting it together.

I would add my own Five Minutes With a Pocket Handkerchief DVD and my KidShow Course which includes seven complete forty minute shows all performed in front of live audiences, plus marketing material, currently available from Practical Magic.

Some books to add to the list are:

Open Sesame by Eric C. Lewis and Wilfred Tyler
Playing With Magic by Wilfred Tyler (difficult to find)
Laughter All The way by Ron Bishop which contains one of the best glove puppet routines ever published.
Children's Parties a Speciality by Peter D'Arcy which contains two full shows and some great routines.
The Land of Make Believe by Fred Barton
Specialised Children's Entertainment by Eric Sharp
Specialised Patter and Funny Routines by Eric Sharp
Kid Stuff by Frances Marshall - all six volumes. Volume Six was my favourite.
