Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

great for all ages. as a High schooler I enjoyed this book, as well as a younger child would

I loved this book, and you needn't worry about your kids attempting any of his feats, unless your kid is an absolute moron and decides to go eat some needles. The book tells you no more about any of the imitable tricks than their names. Only will you get any type of description from something like the Chinese torture cell. Just simply tell your children he was an expert and even many magicians now wont even attempt some of his tricks. And that is only if your kid is one of those "evil geniuses" who is smart enough to give it a running jump and is willing to do it.
