No one in town is brave enough to go up on the high trapeze, except for one mysterious masked person. Incredible has the ability to become invisible in an instant. This was a Scholastic (?) paperback measuring maybe 8" x 5" circa 1979-80 and had the three kids on the cover. They realize then that they underestimated her intelligence.
