Anything but Ordinary Addie – The True Story of Adelaide Herrmann – Queen of Magic
Wonderfully illustrated and written! We learned about Addie the Great, a person we’d never heard of before!! She was once one of the world’s most famous magicians. Now looking forward to reading her memoir which was discovered after the author of this book searched for it for 10 years!! GREAT book!!
