Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
It's one thing to read about science, it's another thing to do it. Lucky readers of this book/kit will get to do both. The slim 32page laboratory manual explains the science of optical illusions and provides directions for recreating some famous ways of tricking the eye. The boxed set of materials that accompanies the booklet provides everything young illusionists will need to perform the tests and projects outlined. There are wellknown illusions described here like the profiles/vase picture, Escher's impossible staircase, and flip books; as well as some lesser known activities like anamorphic art, 3D illusions, and the praxinoscope. The directions are simply written, the materials are clearly marked, the science is understandably explained, and there are suggestions for additional activities. It's a welldeveloped package—one that science teachers, math teachers, and explorationminded readers will all equally enjoy. 1998, Silver Dolphin Books, Ages 8 up, $19.95. Reviewer: Judy Katsh
