Billed as “the magazine of life, the universe, and pie throwing,” the subscription-based “Muse” is published nine times a year. With the exception of a regularly running comic, the features in this issue are all nonfiction. The theme of the issue is “Fooling Our Senses.” One article explains how artificial ingredients in food affects how we experience how food feels in our mouths. Another feature allows readers to test their sense of smell with a scratch-and-sniff quiz. In addition, an article describes an experiment that tested whether violin players could identify new or old instruments by sound alone. In all, there are articles that address all of the five senses. The magazine’s regular features include lots of interactive pieces: reader letters, a project-based contest, even a column written by readers. There’s also an interesting set of short articles in which readers are challenged to identify the one false story. Sort of like a news quiz for children. The magazine seems aimed at middle-school-age kids — it would be a great general interest periodical for a middle-school classroom. The only advertising is for other products offered by publisher Cricket. ( )
