Dear Mr. Rosenthal. On behalf of the Arrowwood Elementary Parent Teacher Organization, staff and students, we would like to thank you for sharing your
knowledge, skills, and talents at ArrowQuest 2013. The day was true to it's promise to expose the students to new phenomena in a fun, hands-on manner. The
goal is to provide students with new ideas for hobbies, for talents, for physical/mental/emotional outlets, for awareness of others, and for future careers. By
George, we think we succeeded thanks to you!!
We cannot thank you enough and cannot tell you how so appreciative we are that you participated in this special day. While walking through the halls that day, I
personally heard "this is the best day of the year" from the children. We know the students enjoyed it, as they are still talking about you!
Sincerely, Kim Cereske and Missy Stantz (ArrowQuest Committee Co-Chairs)
event in Ann Arbor-He’s got a great mission and a great show. He performs a lot for schools, and I even once a few years back hosted a large gathering and he
performed in my house! One of my adult guests pulled me aside and emphatically said, “That guy is AWESOME. That was the most interesting animal show I’ve
Mark’s Animal Magic show is a combination of magic show and animal education. He’s a licensed rescuer for illegal “pets” people have dumped on him once
they got bigger and started to get dangerous or undesired: you know: alligators, kangaroos, snakes, tarantulas, and lots more . . . If zoos can’t take these
animals, he takes care of them, and he regularly takes a selection of interesting animals out to his live shows and teaches people cool things about them.
On behalf of the Juvenile Detention staff and residents, I would like to thank you for coming to our
facility and making the Animal Magic presentation. The show was completely unlike anything we have
ever seen. The residents enjoyed seeing the sloth and the kinkajous, and the lemur definitely
stole the show. The residents are still talking about the show!
What can I say? Thank you for giving our kids another wonderful show in Blissfield Michigan! We have been coming to see you at the River Raisin Festival for
the past three years. Each show has been unique, entertaining and informative. Thank you so much.
What can I do to keep you coming back to the Blissfield festival each year? Should I express my interest to the festival director? If we have to convince you to
make a return trip every year then I hope emails such as mine help in that process. If you keep coming back, we'll keep bringing the kids. It's a GREAT show!
Mark and Sheila Southward
Just wanted to say again how much I enjoyed your show today at my boy's school (Carpenter Elementary) and I finished your book about an hour ago. I couldn't
put it down! Every minute I had today I was reading your great stories!! It got a lot of attention at the boy's karate class and I shared your web site :) Thanks
again for a wonderful read and a great show!
Mark, I saw your program today (7/19/2012). I was the kid who asked how many bones does a human have in its body. Anyway, I just wanted to say that your
show was the best show I've ever seen! You're sooooooo awesome and very daring.
A. Jay G. P.S. Where's Reggie!
My three sons (Joey, Jonathan and Joshua), my wife and I attended your show at Macomb Centre this past Saturday. AWESOME!! Thank you for sharing your
experiences, your talent and your passion for these amazing animals. My wife and I had NO idea about your preserve and your mission. My boys couldn't get
enough of you and your animals. In fact, my oldest (Joey-8) has already ripped completely through your book and just about told us every story (practically
verbatim). Mark, thank you again for sharing this great passion. We had a great time. Joey inquired about having you over to do his birthday. Anyhow, I just
wanted to once again thank you for an amazing time, congrats on the Entertainer of the year award and God bless you and your family for what you do. James
was a riot!!
VERY sincerely--Joe Opolski

"World renowned animal trainer and magician, Mark Rosenthal, appeared at the Fred C Fisher’s ‘Discover New Trails’ Program.’ He wowed a packed house of
300 delighted children of all ages.”
WOW! What a presentation! Thank you for taking the time to visit Maconce Elementary School. Your presentation was very creative and captured the interest
of the children. Students and staff alike enjoyed the variety of animals you presented. Sharing of your time, talent and special friends was inspirational to us all.
Thanks again for sharing with us.
Mrs. Carol S. Selby, Principal
We went to the show at the Milan Middle School last night and my kids loved it. I bought your book and had to read it as soon as we got home. I love it! I hope
that we get to come to one of your bigger shows!
Dear Mark, I just finished reading your book. I enjoyed it very much. I laughed and I cried. Your stories are wonderful and you are a very good writer. I want to be
the first in line for your next one.
“I attended your show with my five year old son Benny at Congregation Shaarey Zedek. From the moment we returned home the first thing he wanted to do was
to go on your website. Benny enjoyed the entire show and will not stop talking about it. He was repeating back to me the safety tips that you were educating the
audience with for each animal. Thank you for a wonderful and educational evening we both had a blast!”
Larry Kirshner, Parent
Thank you for a wonderful learning experience for the Bennie Bobcats! Students and their teachers were buzzing about you and your animals all afternoon. I
also appreciate the rapport you built with our students. Animal Magic is FANTASTIC!!!
Cathy Goulet, Principal, Bennie Elementary
Thank you for your fabulous educational techniques and hands on approach and
personality that makes learning what it should be...FUN!”

Dorie Freebury, Northville Library
“Wow! I don’t know who enjoyed it more, the staff or the students! You are great with both!”
Michelle Weiss, Way Elementary School
I think your book was wonderfully written. The stories are humorous, and even informational. It's heartwarming too, when you reunite with the animals. Some of
the stories are shocking too. GREAT BOOK!
Laurynn Green, age 11
“Thanks for teaching my students that studying life science means something in the real world. It made my job a lot easier!”
“My kids can’t stop talking about your show! They even asked to go to the library to look things up about your sloth and other animals. I am so happy! Thanks
for making learning cool.”
“I loved your show Mr. Rosenthal. I have decided that when I grow up, I want to be an animal doctor and I want to save the rainforest and I want to do what you
do. I am not even afraid of snakes anymore.”
Emily Adams, 4th grader
“Thank you! What a SUPER job! The kids ask every day if you’re coming back."
Julie Chotkowski, 2nd grade teacher
“Mark, You are amazing and your animals are spectacular! It was terrific (as usual!)”

Ola Saad, Healthy Kids Project
“Dear Mark. Thanks for another spectacular Animal Magic show at the Northville District Library! It was fun seeing Peek-a-Boo the wallaby and Hoover the Cavi. I’
m still trying to figure out the secret to the hedgehog magic trick! Thanks again! Looking forward to seeing you for spooky Animal Magic in October.”
Dorie Freebury, Northville Library
“Mark-Thank you so much for a GREAT animal experience. The campers AND staff had nothing but good things to say.”

do, he said you are amazing!”

“The children loved you (so did I)! Thanks for sharing with our kids. Now everyone wants a bush baby.”
Rhonda Block, teacher
“The animals are great...you are terrific! Thank you for everything you do!”
Cindy O’Connor, teacher
Mark's Animal Magic show is not only entertaining, but also very educational, he mixes the two extremely well! Mark captures his crowds with his enthusiastic and
energetic stage presence. He teaches things about his animals that you may never have learned, and some of his animals you may not even know existed in the
world! Mark is a true showman. His illusions will leave you scratching your head, I promise! His love and commitment to his animals is evident as he shares them
with his audiences. He is a wonderful, caring, animal advocate. Do yourself and your kids a favor and see one of his shows. I promise you won't be disappointed,
and you'll find yourself looking for his next show!
D.J. Wagoner, parent
Mark Rosenthal is the BEST! He has brought his animals into my science classes for many years and shared many unique and unusual animals with my
students. Do you know what "ovoviviparous" or "poikilothermic" mean? Mark taught my kids many more vocabulary words and their meanings while presenting
animals that exemplified the scientific terms. What a wealth of knowledge Mark shared with my students. He's quite an educator!!
Eve Brown, 5th grade teacher
I saw Animal Magic and loved it! OMG...this show was the best I have ever seen! Mark performed magic tricks with animals! I saw animals I have never seen
before. I learned so much about these animals...things I never knew before. My mom loved the show almost as much as I did! Every time Mark is in town
performing, I beg my mom to see him and she takes me. All my friends love Mark and his show.
Laura Deloreen, parent
This show is truly one of a kind. Mark introduces his animals and magic tricks to the audience in a very unique and entertaining manner. The kids adore him and
flock to see this show. I learned a lot about animals myself. This show is, without a doubt, the most entertaining, interesting and creative one I have ever seen.
Anyone can do magic but this is one guy who not only does magic, but he teaches kids about animals and some of his animals you probably have never seen
anywhere!Several kids i know have learned a lot from Mark!!! If you see the show you will never forget him or his animals or the magic tricks! Please take the
time and see him!! There's nobody and I mean nobody in the world that can do certain things he does!
My family and I have seen Mark 5 different times and we want to see more! I am an elementary school principal and this show is so amazing that our teachers
loved it as much as the kids. Highly recommend!!
Richard Banks, Principal
This show is so unique. Mark not only entertains but educates as well, bringing with exotic animals he has rescued. He has entertained at many libraries, schools,
and various functions and he has "followers" in many states and his reputation is still growing. We highly recommend him for family entertainment for all ages!
I took my 3 kids to see this show and it was truly AMAZING! We have since seen him 2 more times and all of us were blown away. We plan on seeing him again at
the Northville library this summer. A must-see show
Amy Plat, parent
Hi!!!!! I saw you at Camp Catch A Rainbow Family Camp!! Your show was amazing!!! I just can't believe how well you organized that show!!! I've never seen
anything like it. When are you going to be on tv again and what channel. Your show was awesome!!! Has that bird eating tarantula grown since the 18th of
October? Your show was sweet!!! And thank you for coming!!!!!
I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Mark Rosenthal, the guy who we met at the Novi Family Pet Expo who gave me my Fear Factor Experience. I feel he deserves
a real Shout Out!!! I had seen him before at the Pizza People's Birthday Party and he did an AMAZING show with all kinds of dangerous and exotic animals.
Jonah was talking about the Alligator he brought for weeks afterwards. So, if you are looking for a cool birthday party idea, you should check this guy out. And
even if you are not, check out when he will be doing public shows because he is absolutely fascinating!!!!!
Don't worry, he won't make you hold a tarantula....hehehe. Not unless you want to.
