really liked it

This book is not as creepy as the cover makes it seem. It's about a young boy who loves Houdini and tries, unsuccessfully, to do his tricks. That part is very funny. One day he actually meets Houdini and gives Houdini his address. Houdini writes him and asks him to visit. I won't say what happens, but there is a sad part, then a clever, mysterious ending. Both my girls, ages 7 & 9, liked it.
