Beautiful art, Wondrous illusions Dec 26 2009
By cedc - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my 10 year old daughter and she loves it. The art work is wonderful in its own right but the associated illusions and puzzles are equally enthralling. Well worth the price.
What a wonderful children's book!! April 28 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love nicely illustrated children's books and this one has become one of my favorites. I really like the illustrator and have other books of his. I love the circus and make curcus dolls and this is a good reference book for that. It is a wonderful book that children and adults will love.
I loved it! Feb. 22 2014
By Arthur Morris - Published on
Format: Hardcover
From my six year old: it was amazing and kind of freaky sometimes! And I loved it!! And it was awesome! I liked every one of the pictures, too!

We will be looking for more from this author, just wonderful.
Entertaining book Jan. 13 2012

Bought this for my 8 year old son and he doesn't get tired of reading it over and over and studying the artwork. The text is very clever and the 'illusions' are quite entertaining.
