About the Book
Readers will be mesmerized by this captivating biography of one of the most celebrated escape artists and magicians in history.

Harry Houdini astounded audiences around the globe with his death-defying acts and illusions. With his wife, Bess, often by his side, he freed himself from ropes, handcuffs, straight jackets, and prison cells. Though Harry was always intrigued by magic, his life was not always so glamorous. As a boy he shined shoes to help his family make ends meet. Yet a career in magic was always in the cards.

Includes a selected bibliography, source notes, important dates, and recommended websites.
