Product description

Review

"In his arresting, informative blend of fact and fiction, Selznick splendidly captures the sense of wonder surrounding Houdini." -- Publishers Weekly

"Crosshatched pencil drawings expertly capture the story's droller moments, as well as Victor's changing expressions....This brief story has an appeal beyond its reading level." -- School Library Journal

"Selznick illustrates his first book with vigorous, carefully composed black-and-white drawings; his faces express emotion with subtlety and quiet humor. The offbeat story is smoothly told...." -- Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Brian Selznick also wrote and illustrated The Boy of a Thousand Faces. Among the books he has illustrated are The Doll People by Ann M. Martin and Laura Godwin, Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride by Pam Muñoz Ryan, which was a finalist for the Independent Booksellers Award, and Frindle by Andrew Clements, which won the Christopher Award. Mr. Selznick lives in Brooklyn, New York. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
