Sid Fleischman wrote more than sixty books for children, adults, and magicians. Among his many awards was the Newbery Medal for his novel The Whipping Boy.

His other titles include The Entertainer and the Dybbuk, a novel, and three biographies, Sir Charlie: Chaplin, The Funniest Man in the World; The Trouble Begins at 8: A Life of Mark Twain in the Wild, Wild West; and Escape! The Story of The Great Houdini.From AudioFile:
Is there a connection between the circumstances surrounding the disappearance and presumed death of Mrs. Kidd and the man in the white suit who is stalking her two children? Kevin and Holly flee Albuquerque for Venice Beach, where they take part in a whirlwind adventure, surrounded by a vibrant group of beach performers and opera singers. Sid Fleischman's signature twists and turns bring unlikely characters into the action. This full-cast production heightens the freshness and urgency of the children's quest to carve out a life and to resolve the mystery. Each cast member adds a distinctive voice and personal interpretation--the jealous co-worker, the jaunty landlady, and the opera organizer--as they aid the intrepid duo.
