Joey and Clapper would never have believed that a holiday in the country would
lead to their actually taking part in a circus ! But Polonius Sefton, the greatest
magician of them all, is convinced that Joey and Clapper will make first-class artists
in the Vanishing Boy act. Although Joey is tremendously excited at the idea, he naturally has terrible
qualms when he realises that it is he who is going to vanish ! What will it feel like to be a Vanishing Boy ?|
The stern discipline of rehearsals, and initiation into the tricks of the trade help him to master these qualms. But
even though practice seems to have produced a flawless act, there is very nearly a disaster on the night of the performance, although, by one of those strange quirks of fortune, this turns surprisingly to the advantage of the Vanishing Boy trio.
