As you turn the pages in this wordless book, the image from the previous page has been zoomed out. A clever idea. Could be used as a mentor text to create similar art pieces. ( )

Basically the same as "Zoom." Good if you need more "Zoom" in your life. ( )

Same idea as "Zoom," but a much more cultural and worldly set of images. Also, this book was a little harder to imagine that "Zoom." ( )

This is a wordless book that provides interesting and surprising perspectives of the world. As you turn the pages, the picture you see is constantly expanding outward. I would use this book as a mentor text for emerging readers and readers who have difficulty taking on the perspectives of other characters. Because there are no words, it is accessible to readers at every level. ( )

This is the follow-up to Zoom and equally creative and thought provoking. The illustrations, which are not accompanied by text, provide a rich visual experience that begins with a close up view of a young boy's watch as he traces ancient Egyptian wall drawings and ends in the darkness of a subway tunnel. Readers will assuredly be amazed and tickled by the optical illusions. Highly recommend. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 014055694X, Paperback)

Open this wordless book and take off on a mindbending visual journey full of twists, turns, and surprises. Zoom from an Egyptian pyramid to an exotic jungle to a sandy beach. But if you think you know where you are, guess again. For in Istvan Banyai's mysterious landscapes of pictures within pictures, nothing is ever as it seems. "Banyai's artwork...works to perfection."-- Kirkus Reviews

(see all 3 descriptions)

A wordless picture book presents a series of scenes, each one from farther away, showing, for example, a boat which becomes the image on a magazine, which is held in a hand, which belongs to a boy, and so on.
