Xtreme Illusions 2

We rated this book:


Xtreme Illusions 2 is a book of optical illusions. Optical illusions trick your brain into seeing things that aren’t really there or that confuse your brain into thinking that something is one way when it might be another. The book includes a lot of drawings and photographs and also has two pull-out activities—a thaumatrope and a zoetrope. It also gives a little explanation on each page for why your brain sees the illusions the way that it does.

I loved this book because the optical illusions are fun and when you see them they are hard to believe. Many things in this book are complicated to understand and I found the simple explanations sometimes to be a little too simple. I wish they had provided more information or at least pointed us to some other references at the library or online where I could study these things more. This book would be good for readers from age eight and older, including adults. Younger kids may not be able to see or understand what’s going on.
