Houdini: World’s Greatest Mystery Man and Escape King
Kathleen Krull (au); Eric Velasquez (il)
Harry Houdini made himself a living legend and became the most famous name in magic. But Houdini, like his acts, was fascinating and mysterious. As a child, he was often on the edge of homelessness, so he would charge crowds to watch him perform tricks he knew no one else could do. Houdini mastered every form of magic available -- card tricks, juggling, illusions -- and traveled the world over to make a name for himself. But true stardom came to him only when he began to focus his act around daring, heart-stopping escapes. Houdini trained his body to withstand the torturous demands of the elaborate acts he created. How did he do it? Magicians never tell. Full-color illustrations. Ages 6 to 10.
