"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.

One day when Victor is older and married, he finds reason to open the box and finds out the secret.
Brian Selznick creates lovely books that are works of art as much as anything else. His illustrations are perfect and lovingly drawn, matching the stories being told.
