Editorial Reviews

"Can you trust your brain 100 percent 24/7? Not always, and Brown presents a fascinating, often hilarious romp of uncovering what the brain is, what it does and how it can fool us. Prepare to be dazzled with cool optical illusions and fun experiments to try. Learn how magicians trick your brain, how to spot con artists, liars and other scammers. The list goes on and on. Brown explains how all of this happens in a super-kid-friendly way using language that will appeal to readers/listeners. Funny, informative and very clever, "Fooled Ya!" will have kids thinking about their brains in a whole new way and become, in the process, better critical thinkers." - Kendal Rautzhan for readingeagle.com
