Children of all ages will be so utterly absorbed by this collection of artistic illusion, they might not realize they are also learning about great art.

With dozens of beautiful reproductions and an engaging, informative text, this children’s book is a fascinating look at artistic illusions through the ages. From mural paintings dating back to Pompeii through examples from nearly every modern movement, Silke Vry reveals how artists fool their audiences with visual tricks, puns, and hidden clues. In addition, she shows kids how to entertain their friends with optical projects they can create at home. For the curious young reader, this compelling book will provide hours of amusement and wonder.
