I, Houdini: The Amazing Story of an Escape-Artist Hamster. I, Houdini is the story of a pet hamster, originally named Goldie, who is an intelligent being. The narrative is from his point of view but he is a proper hamster; this is not a talking animals fantasy. I enjoy this book as much as an adult as I did as a child and Terry Riley’s illustrations are just gorgeous. They may be black and white illustrations but they are intricate and perfect and I can see them all in my head without even having to find the book because I have looked at them so much.

I am always trying to show my children that they will learn to write well by reading a well written book --and this certainly sets a great example that kids can relate to. Lots of new words for them to learn.

I, Houdini: The Amazing Story of an Escape-Artist Hamster

I, Houdini: The Amazing Story of an Escape-Artist Hamster. In this funny yet thoughtful book, Lynne Reid Banks takes us into the mind, and heart, of a brilliant and delightful character who has flaws just like the rest of us. What is endearing about Houdini is that he is willing to admit his imperfections and mistakes.

You may think Houdini is a strange name for a hamster, but if you've ever heard of the late Great Houdini, the most amazing escape-artist of all time, you'll understand how I got my name. I'm proud to say that there hasn't been a cage built that can hold me. I can climb, dive, wriggle, squeeze, or gnaw my way out of any prison they came up with. I have to admit that sometimes freedom leads to a bit of trouble-like getting cornered by the cat, ending up in the dog's mouth, or being trapped in the freezing cold of a dark refrigerator

Read this book as a little kid and bought it for my daughter to read when she got her pet hamster for her birthday. So far the hamster hasn't escaped and had any big adventures!

Even though reading I, Houdini was summer homework, I thought it was a pretty good book. The story is told by a hamster whose name was Goldie until he finds his secret urge. This urge leads him into many adventures.

When Goldie is bought by a family with three boys, his owners put him in a wooden box. After a while living in the box, he gets bored. That's when he finds his urge--to get out and be free. His owners are very careless and leave a stack of books next to Goldie's box. Goldie jumps onto the books and gets free--the first but definitely not the last time.

Finally, his owners catch him. Instead of putting him back in the box, they put him in a waste basket. Because of the slippery walls, they think he cannot get out. But again, he gets the urge and escapes the same way.

Another time, he escapes and makes a nest under the floorboards, where he stores a food supply. But the problem with the nest is that it has no water supply. After a while, Goldie finds out that one of the lead pipes under the floorboards is a water pipe, so he starts gnawing on it. Finally he makes a hole in the pipe, and the house starts flooding.

While the family "defloods" the house, Goldie gets back into his cage. When the boys find Goldie back in his cage, they immediately think of their parents who will be very peeved to find out it was Goldie who made the hole and started the flood. So they take him over to their friend Ben's house and ask him if he can take care of Goldie and not let him out. But, of course, Ben does let him out, and he escapes again.

Goldie escapes so many times that his owners finally decide to rename him Houdini after Harry Houdini, the great escapologist.

The book wasn't very believable, but it was exciting reading.

The person who brought you The Indian in the Cupbord and The Return of the Indian wrote another book ... I,Houdini. That person is Lynne Reid Banks. I,Houdini is an outstanding book about a clever hamster named Houdini who escapes from anything, anywhere. Once Houdini escaped from a burning fire! He also made a nest in a piano! But there's only one thing he can not escape - from Oggi, when he falls in love with Oggi. If anything will try to stop him he'll be to brave and will fight back no matter what dog, cat, bird- anything.

I Houdini is a book about a genious hamster who longs for freedom. He's called that because he can escape the very best made cages.
I think the author, Lynne Reid Banks wants you to know that you can do any thing you if you're determined and keep trying.
I liked the way the hamster thought and the way he despised other hamsters. I also liked the way the author discribed the book. It was full of suspense all the way through, and was easy to understand.

My name is ashley and I'm a 6th grader from New York. I am doing a book reveiw on I,Houdini by Lynne Reid Banks. The main character Houdini, is a hamster. Houdini wants to experience life outside his cage. Freedom has Houdini experiencing many dangers and adventures like getting cornered by a cat and ending up in a dog's mouth.
I feel this book was easy to read and enjoyable. The reason why is because it is an easy flowing book and there is a lot of action. Houdini's trouble causes the reader to keep flipping the pages to find out what happens to Houdini. When I read that Houdini ran right into a dog's mouth I wanted to see what happened to him.
I recommend this book to kids who like reading stories about animals. Also for anyone who had a hamster for a pet would enjoy this story. They could relate to Houdini's adventures and the way he escapes from being caged. I feel this book is for both girls and boys between the ages of 9-13. You might think Houdini is a strange name for a hamster but once you read this book you will understand how he got his name.
Houdini is a clever little hamster who can escape out of any cage! He is able to understand human speech. He is called names & locked in a freezer, caught by a dog & yet still manages to stay alive! Read this if you like hamsters or animals!
