Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Janis Flint-Ferguson
Maisie Robbins and her twin brother Felix live in the old family mansion in Rhode Island, under the guardianship of their Great-Uncle Thorne and his Great-Aunt Maisie. For the twins, having the run of the ancient old house means finding out more about the Pickworth side of their family. The mansion's most interesting room is known as the Treasure Chest. It contains all sorts of artifacts, and it allows the twins to have the most interesting of all adventures—time travel. On the night of the school talent show, Maisie and Felix are caught in a disagreement between their elderly relatives over a pair of handcuffs. Suddenly, the younger twins find themselves standing at Coney Island, New York holding the handcuffs. They believe that the handcuffs from the Treasure Chest belong to Harry Houdini, so they set out to find him. Instead they meet a young fellow named Ehrich Weiss; they soon learn that he is the magician they are seeking. Maisie and Felix are soon hired to help him improve his English and accompany him to some carnival magic and freak shows. Returning the handcuffs from the Treasure Chest involves some important lessons about family and time travel. This series cleverly introduces young readers to significant events and people in history as well as lessons in growing up. At the end of the book is a biography of Harry Houdini; details in the adventure recreate turn-of-the-century New York. This is the fourth in "The Treasure Chest" series.
