What do yo think you would find in a creaky old hotel built by a famous magician and the home of old retired magic performers? If you guessed ghosts, strange disappearances and shadowy figures in the hallways, you guessed right!

Charlie Hitchcock is your average geek kid. He has a photographic memory and loves to play his Sherlock Homes Maximum Z video game. But, Charlie's life is about to change when he received a note from the worst bully in the entire school, Tyler Yu. The note reads:
Meet me after school at 1313 Gideon Street alley in back. Don't show this to anyone!!!!
Unfortunately, Charlie showed his best friend who then spread the word to the entire school. For Charlie it's a long walk to what is The Hocus Pocus Hotel, formerly know as The Abracadabra Hotel, built by one of the most famous magician's of all time. Tyler Yu, wasn't planning to beat up Charlie, he needed his help to solve a mystery. Missing shower curtains and rings, expensive silver spoons and howling ghostly voices start this duo on a path of solving a puzzle and building a friendship.

Dahl has devised an intricately woven mystery young boys will love. Diagrams and drawings show some famous magicians tricks and how they work. Any magic enthusiast could become a magician by just reading through the pages. Lively illustrations give readers an inside view of the famous hotel and its characters.
