SPELLBINDER : THE LIFE OF
New York : Holiday House,

is the life story of Harry Houdini. It is filled with great pictures
like old advertisements for some of his performances. There are also
interesting facts that I never knew about Houdini -- like personal details
about his bizarre relationships with his mother and wife. The best
part about this book is the cool descriptions of some of the crazy trick
that he performed -- occasionally it includes HOW he did them, too!
If you need to read a biography, this one is a hit. (New
