    What bright kid doesn't love optical illusions!

    I purchased this book for my great-granddaughter's birthday. It was the biggest hit at the party. Everyone wanted a look, especially the old geezers there who had loved optical illusions in the pre-TV days when BOOKS were the prime entertainment.
    My GGdaughter has already begun her own sketchbook of pictures she's copying from her gift.
    This is a fun book to take to bed or just have lying around for those idle moments so rare today. It makes ME want to go back to the thirties/forties when we had time for the sheer pleasure of indulging in these types books!

    <<<<<<<<<<<ILLUSSIONS>>>>>>>>>>

    Enjoyed the new and the old. A lot of repeats from other books, but great collection overall. I enjoy just picking the book up and opening it to any page. Always intriguing rather if you have looked at it once or several times. This book is a must have if you like optical illusions.
