Description
How can you tell that your jersey is inside-out? How do you realize that a soccer ball is coming right at you? How do you know which players are on your team? It all starts with light—and with the amazing human eye. The master of brilliant explanatory illustrations, seen in books like Cathedral and The Way Things Work, Caldecott Medalist David Macaulay here takes readers 6 to 9 to a soccer game to show how the eye and brain work together to turn light into useful information about the world around us. Clever anatomical drawings and diagrams explore everything from the lens, iris, and retina to the muscles that move and protect the eye.

"This book is geared to newly independent readers who like a challenge. The material is placed within the humorous story framework of a coed soccer game. As the match proceeds, the text explains what 'you' are observing at each stage and how your eyes are transferring the information to your brain. The book is formatted in an easy-reader style, with short sentences on each page. Macaulay does not shy away from sophisticated vocabulary and concepts appropriate to his subject, but both are supported by copious, clear diagrams."—School Library Journal
