Synopsis

Harry Houdini Death-defying Showman by Rita Thievon Mullin

Sterling Biographies are packed with information, and filled unique images that include rare documentary photographs, artwork, maps and personal artefacts. Focusing on inventors and innovative thinkers who transformed the world, they present first-person accounts and dramatic events related in an intimate and accessible style. With his seemingly impossible escapes and incredible feats of illusion, Harry Houdini lived a life so fantastic that it seems almost too amazing even for fiction. Children will enjoy reading about everything from his impoverished childhood, through making his mark as an aeroplane pioneer and his on-stage magic!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
