The full-page spread includes actions photos and pictures of Noland's props, and he encourages kids to start at their local library. The online version even has a video in which Montgomery teaches a trick.
"'You have to read books; watch other magicians perform; and practice, practice, practice.' Montgomery says that anyone, at any age, can be a magician."
