The Secret of

​the Great Houdini​
by Robert Burleigh
Atheneum, 2002
​​

“Gore's illustrations depict a larger-than-life magician who most often spills off the page. There is a wonderful close-up of the anxious child, with the water dark-hued and deliciously foreboding.”
                      -School Library Journal

“…illustrations strike a misty note, with the chilly blues of the water contrasting handsomely with Houdini himself who, bathed in a pale light, appears enigmatic, even otherworldly.”
                            -Publishers Weekly​

“… subtly tinted, atmospheric artwork reinforces the deep mystery.”
