"He was born Ehrich Weiss in Budapest, Hungary, in 1874, but he remains known throughout the world as "Harry Houdini," the legendary magician and escape artist. Author Sid Fleischman, who's a magician himself, tells the intriguing story of Houdini's life, from his childhood in Wisconsin to his early days as a struggling showman and his triumphs as the world's most famous magician. Fleischman also describes some of Houdini's famous feats, such as breaking out of a Chicago jail cell and being suspended upside-down in a tank of water. Prepare to be amazed!"
