Like a lot of biographies, this book also starts from the birth of the person:) The book is divided into different chapters and each chapter has some great pictures that add to the story's realness. You will find out in great detail about Houdini's many secret tricks and the reaction that he got from the public. The book also has a good message as well. That someone as unprivileged and poor like Houdini (whose real name is discussed in the book) overcame a lot of obstacles to achieve all that he did, and by doing so, he also made it possible for other people to think of magic and its many possibilites.
For grades 4th and up.
