From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Gr. 5-8. Veteran science writer Simon is at his very best here explaining how we see and hear. With simple, direct prose, he makes clear how "our eyes and ears sense light and sound and send nerve signals to the brain." Then he shows how the brain puts the information together. The large, exquisitely reproduced photographs from a number of sources look like fiery planets, galaxies, and monster creatures, and they may be more dazzling than explanatory, but they bring the science up close with pictures of everything from an eyeball to the cone cells on a retina to the thin flap of skin that is the eardrum. The anatomy and physiology are detailed and accurate, with clear diagrams that show the human body and how it works. Whether Simon talks about the reason for nearsightedness or how the ears' semicircular canals affect balance, he has a rare ability to explain the facts and the wonder of them without being condescending or cute. He also offers a few interactive pages, including entertaining examples of optical illusions and instructions for checking the blind spot on the retina. This will also interest high-school students and adults. Hazel Rochman
