Booklist - 01/01/2017 Bright and charming Audacity Jones finds herself on another adventure that takes her out of Miss Maisie’s School for Wayward Girls to New York City along with her best friend, Bimmy, her sly cat, Min, and Cypher, the relocated chauffeur. There they meet famous magician and escape artist Harry Houdini, who is the middle of planning his biggest theatrical disappearing act yet, making an elephant vanish in a crowded theater. While working for the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, Cypher is hired by Houdini to keep an eye on Theo Quinn, the mastermind behind the trick. Still, sabotage lurks around every corner. Calling on Bimmy’s background as a circus performer and her acquaintances who have migrated to the stage, this caper is magical. A subplot concerning a baby elephant and animal cruelty is especially heart-wrenching but educational. In this follow-up to Audacity Jones to the Rescue (2016), Larson sprinkles the story with the colors, sounds, and excitement of the Big Apple and vaudeville, while the ever-cheerful Audacity Jones really does steal the show. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
