Mister CrobsAs part of the 2012 Kids Euro Festival, the Cleveland Park Library is proud to present Mister Crobs the Magician! Brought to us by the French Embassy, this funny magic and clown show will take place on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 11 a.m.

Imagine a magical layer cake of jokes, tricks, poetry, games, clowning, ventriloquism and one funny story after another! In the flash of an eye, the famous master magician disappears, and is nowhere to be found — so his assistant, Mr. Crobs, must try his best to replace him. But since the bumbling Mr. Crobs has none of his boss’s talent, the show will need all the help it can get from the audience!
