Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The weird and wonderful artistry of award-winner Wallace Edwards brings you The Painted Circus, a showstopper of a book where the eye is tricked, bamboozled, hoodwinked and flimflammed ? but finally rewarded when all mysteries are revealed after the grand finale P.T. Vermin, ringmouse extraordinaire, ushers patrons into the Big Top to behold 22 astonishing stunts, including Norwegian Marching Ducks, the Spectral Sphere and the Flying Fishtastics, each featuring an eye-opening optical illusion. It's all here — fabulous phenomena, impossible objects, moving patterns, visual distortions and topsy-turvy geometric illusions Each page encourages kids to get into the act by solving the visual puzzles in every image — and they will delight in spinning, flipping, tilting and making funny faces at the book as they do so. Entertainment for the whole family, Wallace Edwards's tour de force is a work of art that will leave readers spellbound by the power of perception and the magic of imagination.

Synopsis:

P.T. Vermin, ringmouse extraordinaire, ushers youngsters into the Big Top to behold 22 astonishing optical illusions that will leave them spellbound. Full color.
