Name: Harry Houdini(DK Biography) Author: Vicki Cobb First off, this book was very well put together. The author puts pictures and interesting facts on the side margins of the pages to really hook the reader. I would reccomend this book to anyone who likes biographies, and magic. Obviously, this book is about the life of Harry Houdini and the lasting impact he had on the world of magic. It tells how he started out at as a small time magician, and became huge.
