Reviews - What do customers think about Harry Houdini : Young Magician?
Master of Magic Jun 5, 2006
This is a book about Harry Houdini. Harry Houdini grew up with four brothers and one sister. He is famous for escaping safes, handcuffs and walking on tightropes. He was introduced to magic at the age of seven. On his journey Harrry Houdini became one of the most famous magicians in the world. Houdini performed for more than one million people in his lifetime. After his greatest trick he passed away. I do not think this was a good book because it did not have a lot of information about Harry Houdini. Also, it did not tell when or where Harry Houdini was born. There were some confusing words. I would recommend this book as a good story but not for school use.
Good, yet sometimes confusing... Apr 25, 2000
As most people know, Harry Houdini was one of the greatestmagicians and escape artists ever known. The author was pretty goodat telling his childhood story, yet sometimes it was confusing. Maybeit because I wasn't concentrating the whole time. Even though I didn't enjoy the whole book, I would still encourage people to read it.
