The story of young Harry Houdini, the world's greatest escape artist!

Harry Weiss--later known by his stage name, Harry Houdini--and his brother, Dash, are enthralled when the circus comes to their Wisconsin town. Harry loves all the acts, but his favorites are the tightrope and the amazing trick where a man hangs from a rope with his teeth! Harry and Dash decide to try circus tricks in a nearby barn, and although Harry's headstrong determination leads him and his brother into trouble, it also opens up a whole new world for him--a world of performance that later becomes his life's passion.

In this evocative story, Eric Kimmel tells how Harry Houdini discovered his love for performing in a small Wisconsin town.
