Why not experience a mindbender every day? This book is a great way to enjoy an optical illusion every day or take them in all at once. Every page features an optical illusion from one of the three main types -- literal, physiological and cognitive. Literal optical illusions create images that are unique from the objects that make them. Physiological illusions occur when the eyes and brain are subjected to excessive stimulation by brightness, color, size, position, tilt or movement. Cognitive illusions are the result of unconscious inferences. All trick the mind into perceiving something altogether different than what the eyes see. The 365 illusions here are based on those variations. There are instantly recognizable classics that trick the eye no matter how many times you see them, and dozens of new ones, like astounding sidewalk illusions and masterful architecture. There are illustrations, paintings and graphics, as well as color and black and white photographs of scenes ranging from buildings to landscapes. Concise text includes a hint about the illusion -- for those who can't "see" it -- and a short description of how it works. Bright, colorful and sure to boggle, this is an ideal gift selection for all ages.

Soup cans! Dollar bills! Movie stars! Paint by numbers! Is it art? Yes! Andy Warhol’s art. Following award-winning artist biographies Degas and the Dance, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Cezanne, an exciting new book from Abrams Books for Young Readers looks at Andy Warhol. A leader of the American art movement known as Pop, short for “popular culture,” Warhol changed the way we think of art. Assisted by photographs taken of Warhol throughout his life, and examples of his early drawings and best-known works, Susan Goldman Rubin traces his rise from poverty to wealth, and from obscurity to fame. After attending art school in Pittsburgh, Warhol started a career as a commercial artist in New York, and quickly won acclaim for his creative advertisements. When he turned to “real” painting, he used his background in commercial illustration and blurred the line between high and low art. Some critics have said that Warhol’s pictures of Campbell’s soup cans and Coca-Cola bottles represent American life. But Warhol said, “I just paint those objects in my paintings because those are the things I know best. I think of myself as an American artist.” Warhol’s unique images will appeal to young readers, and inspire them to see the world around them in new ways.

Carle is one of the most beloved illustrators of children's books. This retrospective is more than just an appreciation of his art, however. The book also contains an insightful autobiography illustrated with personal photographs, an anecdotal essay by his longtime editor, a photographic essay on how Carle creates his collages, and writings by Carle and his colleagues. Still, it is the artwork in the oversize volume that seizes the imagination. More than 60 of his full-color collage pictures are handsomely reproduced and serve as a statement of Carle's impressive talent. - Booklist
