Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Using common household or classroom materials, youngsters can complete more than 50 projects. DiSpezio begins with the scientific explanation of how and why the illusions work and includes general safety rules in handling the materials. Zweifel's line drawings are easy to understand. While there are more glitzy books on the subject, including others by the author, this one is practical and useful.-Cynde Marcengill, Horry County Memorial Library, Surfside Beach, SC Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
