Abrams 'Harry Houdini' released today


Harry Houdini: The Legend of the World's Greatest Escape Artist by Janice Weaver and Chris Lane is now shipping from Amazon.com. Released by Abrams Books for Young Readers, the 48 page hardcover is aimed at readers ages 9-12 and "combines original artwork and archival artifacts—including photographs, playbills and posters, letters, and even some of Houdini’s own stage props—to bring the story of the world’s greatest escape artist to life."

I don't have my copy in hand yet, but I will provide a little update/review here when I do.

  1. I wonder if the never-ending stream of children's books about Houdini is an indication that they sell well. He'd be happy for the publicity so many years after his death.
