Wendy's world changes a lot when she finds a pair of sunglasses that let her see things she couldn't before - such as ghosts, witches without their disguises, elves, blue troublemaking spreenies, portals that travel between realms and can take you back in time when you don't know how to work them correctly. This new look into life brings her closer with her grandma as she gets to meet & work with a younger version of her grandma to help save Julian a schoolmate/elf who was kidnapped. Teaches lessons such as not to judge based on appearances or jump to conclusions without all of the facts, and that you never know how brave you can be till the situation arises and you are faced with the decision on how to react. This book made me start to look at my surroundings and the individuals in my life in a different way to try to appreciate others more and not to loose focus on what is around me in my surroundings.

This book is okay in some ways. I never stopped reading it, but nothing ever caught my eye. I'm not a huge fan of fantacy, but if you love fantacy, you'd love it! I would recommend it for children aged 8-12.

'Now you see it' is a book that's unpredictable. Some parts are really funny as you get deeper into the book. It's definately, worth the time to read.

Now You See It¿ by Vivian Vande Velde is a fabulous book full of adventure and comedy, daring people, kidnap, magical sunglasses, evil, and magic. Wendy is a nearsighted who stumbles upon these magical sunglasses which allow her to see the unusual and oddly enough¿ clearly. For example, the most popular and prettiest in school is butt ugly with the glasses, and an already cute boy looks even cuter with elf ears. But Wendy stumbles upon a magical gate too and ends up in a magical world full of dragons, elves, and many other things. Out of a scale from 1 to 10 I give this 9. People of any age will love this book if they are into Adventure and funny stories. This book is pure fiction with twists of everyday life. For example, Wendy is a High school teenager and her grandmother is in a nursing home and can¿t take care of herself as she fights off Alzheimer¿s. IT is fiction because you can not se ghosts with a eye. Wendy could see ghosts with the glasses on and watched an old lady pass on into the light. Tiffany, the most popular in school suddenly looks old and ugly. Julian, an already cute boy, looks even cuter with the glasses on as he has pointy ears. The Author has an amazing style of writing as she Tells Wendy¿s story from a first person point of view.

Now You See it¿ By: Vivian Vande Velde This story is about a young girl, Wendy, who finds magical sunglasses. When she puts on the glasses she can see dead people and she can also see what her fellow classmates actually look like and this leads to following occurrences like attempts to take the glasses by classmates. At first she doesn¿t know what to think of it and she guesses she sees dead things. After a while she finds much more about the glasses but you will have to read to find out. In my opinion I thought this book started out real slow but started to pick up after a while. I¿d say that it would appeal to older kids and mostly girls but I¿m not saying that they appeal to only girls I read it and I¿m a boy and it was pretty good. So I¿d say the theme is that people aren¿t always the same as there outside. This book was ok as you can see by the rating

I read the book Now You See It by Vivian Vande Velde. The book is about a girl named Wendy who finds magical sunglasses in her front yard. She puts them on and Tiffanie, the most popular girl in school, becomes a 90-year-old lady. Also, Julian, the boy she likes all of a sudden has pointy ears. They chase her until she crosses through a magical archway and into a place that is ruled by elves. If I had to rate this book I would give it a 2 out of 5 because it isn¿t very well written in my opinion. It has a good plot but the way she laid it out confused me. I don¿t understand why the girl ended up in the 1950s when she wanted to go back to her own house. Overall this is a not so good book but I would recommend it to boys and girls ages 7-14 although I mostly recommend it to girls because the main character is a girl. When Julian is captured Wendy must save him and a dragon attacks them. I think the theme of this book is appreciate the ones you love while you still have them

I found it in the library which I normally can't find anything in and thought it looked interesting. But it's beyond interesting it's awesome. How quirky Wendy is and how the twist at the end of the story plays it is just so cool. I definitly recommend it to any of you who love adventure, mystery, and fantsy.

Wendy leads a pretty normal life: she goes to school, see's her friends, and doesn't like most popular kids. But one day her new glasses break and when she notices a pair of sunglasses on her lawn she's much too pleased to wear them. For some reason the glasses seem to match her perscription..a little too much. She starts seeing weird things like her fellow classmates having elf ears or long noses. She even steps into another world! A world she must save. With the great help of Eleni she manages to save the hidden world, make some great friends, and protect her world from knowing the secrets.

I didn't like this book at all. It was poorly written and really easy. I mean she finds glasses and sees dead people! OMG! It is such a simple plot line I'm not even joking. The athuor, has poorly written it I can read fast and love books for me to say it's bad is something, so this is my thought on the book so if you like it it's not for me to say because my frineds loved it. Though I hated it, so I wouldn't read it again to save my life.
