We all enjoyed this one, it appealed to my math nerd and my visual kid. Have caught them both reading it or looking at pictures since we read it together several weeks ago. Explores optical illusions using a loose, rather strung together story. The illusions are the best part.

All the classic optical illusions combined into a story. I think this book is out of print, but I'd now count it as an absolute must in my classroom.
