What makes complete images suddenly arise out of random patterns? With this crazy book of optical illusions, astound your eyes and amaze your brain and discover the science of how the illusions work. Clive Giffords fun and accessible text introduces kids to the neuroscience behind how our brains and our eyes interact, creating these amazing phenomena.
