Houdini's mother left him when he was just tiny egg. Before she left, she whispered a blessing, "You will do amazing and magical things, Houdini."

As Houdini grew, he found himself in a classroom with an enthusiastic audience of kids, so naturally, he began to perform. And, yes, he did do amazing and magical things. Can you guess what they were?

Houdini the Amazing Caterpillar will make science come alive in your classroom, too. You will never forget the magical things he does ... not the least of them is to tell you his story in this delightful picture book!
