Illustrated by Mark Edwards
When Max's father is arrested for something he didn't do, Max runs away and joins up with the world famous Masters of Illusion, The Great Zapristi. But as Zapristi's assistant - Ali, the Boy Wonder - on a dollar a week, he can't earn enough money to clear his father's name and get him out of prison. Could he do it as Might Max, the Pocket Ringmaster at Gonazago's Circus? Dare he do it as himself, Maximilian Rich, the Boy Who Walks the Tightrope?
Join Max on his adventures - through lions' cages, storms at sea and dazzling feats of bravery - from New York to the Niagara Falls. A story that will have you roaring for more!
