I really enjoyed this biography that focuses intensely on Houdini's fascination with spirits. This one may have gotten more stars from me if it wasn't so inaccessible. Even I, as an adult, would get confused by the (sometimes unnecessary) rich vocabulary, making it less accessible for children. I also really liked all the callouts and design of the text, but at times it was distracting because the flow of how the callouts were placed was odd. All in all, I would recommend but with these caveats.
