Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7 An introduction to optical illusions and other tricks to fool the senses, especially touch and hearing. Basic information about human physiology, such as the blind spot in the eye or the placement of nerve endings in the fingers, is included. The author ties the eyes adjusting to the dark or the "settling" of a house at night into the bedroom theme. Other tricks involve the use of static electricity and the properties of air and heat. Black-and-white cartoons serve instructional purposes and heighten the fun of the text. Most of the tricks are easy to perform with common items such as paper, balloons, and a sock. Not unusual, but fun. -Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
