Submitter: My students do love this kind of book, but this one is so dated that it has definitely lost its appeal to middle schoolers. It’s time to replace it with something more current.
Holly: This submission comes to us from a middle school library. As you can see from the due date card in the first picture below, it has a checkered past of use.
This is a great choice for a middle school library; especially since it actually explains the science of optical illusions. I loved this kind of things when I was about 12 (still do, actually!).
Verdict: It’s not the worst thing I’ve seen, but I know there are newer ones. I’d keep it if it circulated better, but apparently it hasn’t gone out in seven years. Weed and replace!
