Book Description

Faster than anything in the universe! Sustainer of life as we know it!

What is this miraculous, mysterious thing? It’s light. And you can be its master with optics, the science of the future. Optics lets you:
- Bend light around corners
- Stop time with a pair of sunglasses
- Capture light on a silver tray
- Magnify pictures with an ice cube
- Pour light into your palm
- Project a big-screen image from your small TV
- Fool a doorbell with a bike reflector

Once you get your head and hands into optics, the world will never look the same again. That’s a promise.
Illustrated by Theo Cobb.
Ages 11 and up.
