A bunch of scientifically proven ways to blow your
A Canadian Toy Testing Council 3-Star Award winner!
The world is weirder than you think. Want proof? Look no further
than this book - which actually looks back at you. In fact, its
eyes follow you across the room. And there''s more weirdness
The Book of Impossible Objects comes with all the
plastic pieces, paper parts, and special pages you need to
experience 25 impossible things. Spin the wobblestone and watch it
reverse direction all by itself. Wander the paper labyrinth, an
ever-changing folded maze. Use the Mirror Monster Maker to give
yourself three eyes. Follow a road sign that points in a different
direction every time you check it.
These objects all work like magic, but there are no tricks here.
All this weirdness has a solid scientific basis - from the
mathematically amazing Möbius strip (a band of paper with only one
side), to cardstock acrobats with astoundingly great balance, to a
spinning top that changes colors before your eyes. The why behind
each wow is explained with crystal clarity by the award-winning
team of Pat Murphy and the scientists of Klutz Labs. Which makes
for a book that''s not only weird - it''s wonderful.
