Addison learns the difference between perspective and illusion.

Addison's mother wants to sell their comfortable old house and move into a townhouse in a new development across town#&8212;a shoe box near a shoe factory, Addison calls it. As usual, Addison's brain goes into overdrive as he tries to solve two problems: first he must get his mother to see their old house in a new light, and then he must figure out who is responsible for a rash of neighborhood break-ins that make his mother feel unsafe. With the help of his friend Sam, he puts his own unique spin on optical illusions (and home decor) and ends up surprising everyone, even himself.

Melody DeFields McMillan is a teacher who lives in Simcoe, Ontario, not far from where she grew up. When she's not writing, she's enjoying all that nature has to offer. Her first book about the irrepressible Addison, Addison Addley and the Things That Aren't There, was nominated for a Silver Birch Award.

"Addison is a well-meaning, lively character whose entertaining narrative is told in short, suspenseful chapters that keep the story moving. Readers will also enjoy the fun activities, with the scientific explanations behind optical illusions and magic tricks accessibly conveyed." - Booklist Online

"Once again McMillan's teaching background has facilitated her talent of blending a fascinating variety of scientific principles with an exciting plot and engaging characters…Similar to the character Greg Heffley from Jeff Kinney's "Wimpy Kid" series, likeable and identifiable hero Addison seems to have it all figured out; he just needs to get everyone else to see things his way…Highly Recommended." - CM Magazine

"Readers will enjoy Addison's adventures and have fun trying to solve the mystery. Recommended." - Library Media Connection

"Addison has a wonderfully humorous voice...Very entertaining and written in an empathetic way." - BookLinx
