Jack and Annie of Frog Creek, PA, are traveling in the Magic Tree House doing missions for Merlin to find secrets of greatness from four historic figures.  Having visited Alexander the Great as a boy in ancient Macedonia, they must now go see the master illusionist and escape artist, Harry Houdini, at Coney Island, NY, in the early 1900s.  Along the way, they enjoy the sights and sounds of the great amusement park. However, can they find Harry?  Will they learn his secret of greatness?  And what is it?  Other than a couple of common euphemisms (darn, heck), there is really nothing objectionable in this book, except for those who dislike reference to any form of “magic” in books.  For everyone else, author Mary Pope Osborne cleverly combines history, mystery, adventure, some fantasy, and a little bit of trouble for the time-traveling brother-and-sister team.
