Quarto title Optical Ilusions by Gianni A. Sarcone and Marie-Jo Waeber (QED) has won the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize 2018!
The title was selected by 6,000 young people from various UK schools and youth groups with the winner announced at an exclusive awards ceremony at the W5 in Belfast.
Professor Yadvinder Mahli FRS, chair of the adult judging panel, said, “Optical Illusions draws you in from the moment you open it. It manages to combine instant appeal of some wonderful and mind-blowing optical illusions with just the right level of explanation that explains the science behind the illusion. As such it has something for every age from 4 to 14, and indeed for adults as well. It both entertains and educates in some surprising ways, and is a worthy winner of the Young People’s Book Prize.”
