Presto is a very talented magician. And his friend Monty is a very confident performer. So when they start a magic show at the carnival, things look good for the dazzling duo.  But as their success grows, so does Monty's head. Soon, he's the one who's always in the spotlight, and he's becoming bossier and more demanding: "Hey, Presto! Get my hat!" "Presto! These bunnies don't work." "I need chocolate ice cream with extra sprinkles—and I need it NOW!"  When Presto gets fed up and decides to leave, what will happen to the show? And more importantly, to their friendship?

Hey, Presto! is a delight: adorable characters, a fresh, appealing art style, spot-on humor, and a touch of magic on each spread.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 29, 2012 – Shireen forgoes the edgy humor of her Good Little Wolf to tell a playful rags-to-riches story of a spotlight-hogging dog who forsakes friendship for fame. Monty, a fuzzy brown dog, and his best friend Presto, an equally scruffy blue cat, live on the streets and “ have much,” but they are happy and have their own talents. Monty’s include “singing, eating ice cream and making extremely silly faces,” while Presto is a “brilliant magician.” When the duo sees a poster soliciting carnival acts, they hightail it to the big tent in hopes of becoming famous. Presto lets Monty take the stage first, helping behind the scenes instead, but Monty quickly turns into a diva. “It was Monty’s turn night... after night... after night.” Fed up, Presto abandons his friend, but returns just in time to save Monty’s televised magic show—and their relationship. Shireen’s characters have oversize heads and bright, googly eyes, making them look ready for adventure. Comedic details including a fire-eating lizard and Monty’s magical disasters bring some spark to a sweet-natured tale about the give-and-take of friendship. Ages 4–8.
