Publisher Comments:

The story of young Harry Houdini, the worlds greatest escape artist!

Harry Weiss—later known by his stage name, Harry Houdini—and his brother, Dash, are enthralled when the circus comes to their Wisconsin town. Harry loves all the acts, but his favorites are the tightrope and the amazing trick where a man hangs from a rope with his teeth! Harry and Dash decide to try circus tricks in a nearby barn, and although Harrys headstrong determination leads him and his brother into trouble, it also opens up a whole new world for him—a world of performance that later becomes his lifes passion.

In this evocative story, Eric Kimmel tells how Harry Houdini discovered his love for performing in a small Wisconsin town.

From the Hardcover edition.
