    A wordless picture book. Elves walk on upside-down stairs, stand on ceilings, dive into swimming pools in hollowed-out books, follow mazes. In the manner of Escher, inside becomes outside, up becomes down, high is low, etc. Anno's detailed watercolors are great. Sample image detail, minus elves: A wordless picture book.

    Wordless picture book about gnomes living in optical illusions. The one with the house, though, isn't really an optical illusion — just seem to be a reversal of gravity. http://pussreboots.com/blog/2018/comm...

    I had this book when I was a kid and it was one of my all-time favorites. I used to study the drawings for hours on end. Available at Open Library: https://openlibrary.org/works/OL17933...

    I love, love, loved this book when I was little. I poured over it for hours. Still think it's FAB. Sort of Escher-lite? but not really cause it's great without needing to be compared to anything else. I love, love, loved this book when I was little. I poured over it for hours.

    This book, wholly devoid of text, presents imaginative drawings of elf-like beings who populate a world that seems impossible in the style of M.C. Escher.

    I prefer Escher's works, with the added dimension of superior draftsmanship and the haunting vibe they give me. But these are more suitable for children, and popular among them, too, given all the checkout stamps in the book.
