Is seeing believing? This book will make you question that it is. Featuring almost fifty amazing optical illusions it explains how playing around with the context of colours, shapes and tones, and by changing viewpoints, your eyes and brain can be tricked into seeing things that aren’t there, or incorrectly seeing things that are. The explanations are as fascinating as the illusions themselves, and the book finishes with a section of simple but effective visual experiments for readers to try out on friends and family. Clever and entertaining this will provide hours of fun as well as really making you think about the brain and what it’s doing. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Optical Illusions by Gianni Sarcone, Marie-Jo Waeber

The brain is an amazing thing, but it doesn't always get things right when it comes to sight. This book is here to explain why, with astounding images, baffling puzzles, and simple reveals which show the reader how each trick works. Templates included at the back of the book reveal answers and aid the creation of astounding illusions. The science behind each element will be simply explained in an engaging way, to encourage the reader to find out more each time. Throughout the book will be chances for the reader to get hands-on with the illusions, with step-by-step experiments, or tips on how to draw your own moving optic art on paper or on the computer.

Reviews

'The page design and bright colour illustrations suit this for both a school library shelf and a child's bedroom. Highly recommended. Adults beware - open this book only if you have a bit of time to spare!' * Achuka *'

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books
