Victor is amazed at Houdini's ability to do almost anything: escape from a bolted metal box dropped in water, walk through brick walls, or hold his breath for five thousand seconds. When Victor tries to imitate these feats, he's stuck. Not only is he unable to escape even a simple locked trunk, he makes no progress whatsoever in walking through walls. Then, Victor meets Houdini himself, who promises to mail Victor a letter with secrets Houdini cannot tell him in a crowded train station. What secrets will Houdini reveal? This book will be great fun for readers who love the mysteries of magic and those who enjoy lots of pictures with their stories.

How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?

Jane Yolen (2000), 40 pages
Illustrated by Mark Teague
Audience: Preschool - Preschool
Category: Fiction, Picture Books
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
Parents will be delighted to know that dinosaurs are, in fact, very obedient with their bedtime routines. A dinosaur doesn't 'slam his tail and pout' or 'throw his teddy bear all about.' This rhythmic story portrays classic bedtime resistance activities (moping, moaning, crying, etc.), asking if dinosaurs do that when they're saying goodnight. Each spread features a comic portrayal of an enormous dinosaur resisting his/her bedtime in a bedroom like a human child's room. At the end, we learn that the way dinosaurs actually say goodnight is by being polite, kissing the parent, and quietly going to sleep. Dinosaur lovers will note that each bedroom has the name of the dinosaur featured on the page hidden somewhere in the bedroom.

Did you know that Surinam toads hatch from eggs that are in pits on their mother's back? Or that the assassin bug spears its prey with a poisonous 'beak?' Read all about the fascinating, and slightly gross, habits of very unusual creatures. The paper collage illustrations are wondrous.
