Synopsis: A royal family and court present a variety of optical illusions which are explained at the end of the book. Includes some suggestions for making your own illusions.

From School Library Journal: Grade 1-4 This slight tale of a castle celebration provides a framework for a collection of optical illusions. There are many things going on in these pages: a jester who fits neatly in the corners introduces each illusion; the optical tricks themselves take up the major part of the page; and the tale of the preparation for the prince's birthday unfolds across the top. These are the sorts of visual tricks that children lovea trident that is either two prongs or three, figures that are either the same size or aren't, color illusions, lines of equal or unequal length, Escher-like tricks of perspective. The directions or questions surrounding the illusions are often in rhyme, which sacrifices clarity at times. Colors of the illustrations, which serve as vehicles for the illusions, are bright. Notes at the end explain the illusions and provide their technical names, but the explanations aren't completely satisfying. There are also suggestions for making optical illusions of one's own. The optical tricks themselves are nothing new, but books that present them for young children are rare. Eye Fooled You (Collier, 1983) by Roy Doty presents more illusions but less interestingly; Brandreth's The Great Book of Optical Illusions (Sterling, 1985) is for older children. The Baums' book is a clever challenge for the eyes. Leda Schubert, Grand Avenue School, Uniondale, N.Y.
