Review: This is a picture biography of Harry Houdini. Interspersed with the story of his life are pages that describe the sequence of his elaborate magic escapes. While the author and Houdini do not share how he did it--the author does tell the reader some fascinating facts about Houdini. He could pick up a coin with his palm, he took locks apart so he understood how they were made, he practiced some of his tricks for three years before doing them on stage, and he trained his toes to work as efficiently as his fingers.
