This new biography covers the highlights of Houdini's childhood and his rise to fame as one of the world's greatest magicians.

How long could Harry Houdini hold his breath underwater? At least three minutes! In one of his tricks, called the Water Torture Cell, Harry hung upside down by his ankles in a giant tank full of water. His arms were locked by chains. He stayed underwater for three minutes as he worked his way out of the chains. Harry started performing as a child by imitating circus performers tumbling and swinging from ropes. He made an elephant disappear in front of an audience. He was the first person to fly an airplane in Australia.
