Product description


"This is an enjoyably interactive work of nonfiction that will have students challenging friends with optical illusions, staring (very) hard at great works of art, and, if they're not feeling too dizzy, trying their hand at creating their own renditions."

"It's a riveting read. . . the enchanting trickery includes concealed messages, upside-down images, and far more."

--Arts & Activities

From the Inside Flap

Children love to be fooled--and artists are some of the greatest tricksters around. This collection features artworks that incorporate a variety of methods for tricking our eyes: including trompe l'oeil, clever uses of color and perspective, Surrealism, and Photo-Realism. Arranged thematically, each work is presented in a two-page spread.
