Mike is doing better in school than ever, thanks to his new magic hobby. With magic, he is a lot more interested in math and in history. When his class gets an opportunity to learn more about their family histories, Mike wants to find out of the magician’s hat his grandmother gave him belonged to Harry Houdini. His grandmother tells him a lot of things about their family history that is very similar to Houdini’s history, and they even have the same last name. While Mike does some research to find out if he really is related to the great magician, he also has to outwit a bully by using magic.
