No need for special eyeglasses! These amazing objects, invisible to the naked eye, and photographed by a special process for the 3D Eyewitness books, can be seen "in the round"-like magic-with a mirror viewer supplied with each title. Slot in the mirror viewer and instantly you can see-in 3D-the scales on the butterfly and a snake delivering its venom. There are 30 fascinating 3D photos to be seen in each book.

This tall, narrow hardcover book comes complete with a plastic-framed mirror. Open the book, rotate it 90 degrees, and place the mirror in a slot: suddenly you can see straight down the gaping, ravenous, downright alarmingly three-dimensional gullet of an alligator snapping turtle. Gulp. The text, which is likely to be ignored until young readers are tired of going squinty-eyed over the pictures, gives an excellent and well-illustrated introduction to the world of caimans, skinks, snakes, and salamanders--with much emphasis on their voracious guzzling of creatures unfortunate enough to be further down the food chain. There's also a clear explanation of the 3-D effect--and, although the book doesn't mention it, nobody should miss the spooky thing that happens when you try to touch the fingertips of your right and left hands at the mirror. (Ages 7 and older) --Richard FarrFrom the Publisher:
