I think I got rid of this book a while back; it was okay, I just didn't like it enough to keep it.

This was a fun children's book. I can see it as fast, interesting read for this reading level.

Grades 2+. Aspiring magician Herman "Houdini" Foster and his cousin Janet help uncover the thief who is stealing money from shoppers at the supermarket.
Would make a good chapter book for interventions for 3rd/4th grade students. Students could participate in solving a mystery.
Melissa Jones
Integrates mysteries and magic tricks. I would say the level of writing is better than Cam Jansen but still easy to follow. The characters are more believable.
