Walter Wick's amazing puzzler celebrates its 10th anniversary with a new redesigned foil cover and an eye-popping magic-picture postcard!

You may have seen drawings of impossible objects, but have you ever seen them photographed? Wick's book of optical illusions leaves readers of all ages wondering just how the I Spy photographer does it!

This book combines fascinating optical illusions with simple explanations of how the visual tricks work. Photos of "Stairs to Nowhere," "The Phantom of the Forest," and more seemingly improbable images are a delightful treat for the eye and mind. Beautiful, challenging, and just really fun, this book has to be seen to be believed. And once you see it, you won't be able to put it down!

My Response: It is fun looking at the colorful photographs and finding the tricks. However, there a few that are difficult to see and are not explained well enough. Overall, this would be a good book for a late elementary or middle school reader. Curricular/Programming Connections:Optical illusionsCreating examples of optical illusions

I bought this book for my son. He's 8. I thought it was a little advanced for him. He got bored with it and didn't quite understand some of the puzzles. It wasn't what I expected it to be. I thought it would be similar to the Eye Spy books. My suggestion is don't buy online unless you've seen the book in person.
