The Secrets of Eyes and Seeing
The lively, conversational tone and blend of photos and cartoon-style art make The Eyes Have It: The Secrets of Eyes and Seeing a perfect blend of fun facts and serious science learning about the human eyes as well as the visual systems of other creatures. Here at last—a book that’s irreverent enough to captivate young readers, yet authoritative enough to win the praise of teachers, librarians, and parents.

Research Notes
“I’ve written about eyes and vision before, but this is the first time I’ve explained what eye gunk is or discussed how police can use tears to solve crimes. Your eyes—and the eyes of other animals—are truly amazing. Did you know that T. rex may have had the best vision ever or that some animals have three eyelids? These are just some of the incredible topics you can learn about by reading The Eyes Have It.”
