Product Details


“magic is at the heart of Dan Gutman’s new middle grade novel, Houdini and Me. . . . Gutman writes with a strong sense of place, and includes pictures of Morningside Heights along with the Houdini photos, so even non-New Yorkers will come away with a feel for the neighborhood and its charms”—The New York Times

“[H]umor and tension make this an appealing page-turner. . . . Funny, scary in the right moments, and offering plenty of historical facts.” —Kirkus Reviews   

“With quick writing and dialogue and fun facts about Houdini, this is an enjoyable read, especially for those interested in Houdini’s life or magic.” School Library Journal 
“Gutman (the My Weird School series) touches on profound topics through Harry’s chatty narration, such as the boy’s yearning for his late father. Interspersed with New York City facts and photographs of Houdini, this entertaining story ends, appropriately, with a touch of magic.”Publishers Weekly

“an amusing adventure that may well entice readers to further Houdini investigation.”The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“[The] first-person narration includes facts about Houdini’s life and famous feats, illustrated with intriguing vintage photos. This chapter book delivers a fast-paced, amusing tale, followed by an informative and very readable author’s note.”Booklist
