Tricky Vic is a catch-me-if-you-can-esque tale of adventure about the captivating con artist Robert Miller (a.k.a. “Count” Victor Lustig). Pizzoli’s artwork and writing capture the brazenness and audacity of Lustig’s escapades that both fascinate and amaze. Side notes ground the book in its historical period offering the reader a glimpse into Tricky Vic’s era.
Readers who enjoy nonfiction, biographies, historical fiction, realistic fiction, or just a well-crafted story with interesting artwork will love this book. I highly recommend it!
