Using his three children as an audience, Fleischman wrote Mr. Mysterious & Company (1962), a story about the adventures of the family of a traveling magician in the old west based on the experiences of Fleischman's three children.
It was after Fleischman completed his autobiography, The Abracadabra Kid: A Writer's Life (1996), that he discovered the genre of nonfiction to be more appealing to him, and he went on to write biographies of Harry Houdini, Mark Twain, and Charlie Chaplin.
