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!
