Ingrid Fartz and her eleven-year-old son Eric fled their hometown of Sheffield to start a new life in Ramsgate, Kent, to escape from an abusive relationship with Eric's Father. Eric was a quiet and painfully shy boy lacking in confidence, who was bullied by two horrible boys at his new school. He didn't have any friends either and was feeling pretty low, until one day, a chance meeting with an old magician at a magic shop stall at the local Christmas Fair convinced him to take up magic, which changed his life
