Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seeing shouldn't always be believing... It all depends on how you look at it--every one of these drawings has a built-in "deception." For example, in this picture how many cubes are there: 7 or 8? Count again: if you're focusing on the black tops, you'll come up with 8, but if your eye is on the white bottoms, you'll find 7 cubes. Some images show two things in one, others confound your perception so you won't be able to judge size, and still more seem to sparkle and pulse. You won't be able to take your eyes off them! 96 pages, 86 b/w illus., 4 x 5.

Synopsis:

Don't puzzle over how to keep fun on hand all the time — these pocket-sized books will go with you here, there, anywhere! What kinds of puzzles do you like best — optical images that fool the eye, or thought-provoking brainteasers that work the mind? Perhaps little mysteries are your cup of tea or you prefer the challenge of lateral thinking. No matter what your taste, there's a pocket puzzler just for you!
