Princess or Not?
The Princess & The Pea is a prediction effect that's been dressed around the well known fairy tale where a princess is identified because she can't sleep on top of ten mattresses that have been stacked on top of a single pea.
Abbott adapts a well known card trick that features lots of interaction and humor with an audience volunteer. Is she a princess or not? This effect will tell.
Best Poker Face
Each spectator selects a card and you identify the cards. The routine has a question and answer segment that provides lots of laughs.
Tell a Story
Abbott has done a great job of updating and refining the story for modern audiences. However, Abbott doesn't have you perform the cuts and shuffles as in Malone’s routine. He emphasizes the story telling which may or may not work for you. I'm not keen on this approach.
Entertaining a large crowd with a set of playing cards is a worthy goal. In this book, you may find a routine that you like and will work for you.
