Bamboozle your mind with optical illusion books!

I love optical illusions – I love the way they trick your eyes and amaze your brain.

There are images that seem to jump right out of the page or patterns that seem to move by themselves.

How can colours appear different when they are actually the same or objects that appear to be different sizes but are really equal in size.

There are some great optical illusions on this website. I love the rotating pink dots that change to green and then disappear and see how fast it takes you to find the man in the coffee beans.

Don’t forget there are heaps of great books on illusions in the library so make sure you check them out and get ready to be bamboozled.

A Very Clever Book

This is one of my favourite picture books that all ages will enjoy. The story is simple, a trip to the city and back. But, it is the clever pictures that will amaze you. The book is flipped around once the story reaches the city and you then turn the pages back and the same pictures tell a different story about the return trip. Talk about optical illusions! You will find yourself twisting the book round and round.

The library has received new copies of Round Trip  an award winner, first published in1983. Reserve a copy.
