She would like a good book on optical illusions, possibly with instructions for how to draw some of the trickier ones. Escher staircases, that kind of thing. Geometric patterns that mess with your head. Got any favorites?

My DH recommended this one. Designing and Drawing Tessellations http://www.amazon.com/Designing-Drawing-Tessellations-Robert-Fathauer/dp/0980219132/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1242629399&sr=8-1
Maybe it is what you are looking for? Although it might be too technical?

I love Dover publications and I bet they would have something.

Dover has a huge selection of books on optical illusions!
This site has a bunch, too.

(Preview this one to determine if it is appropriate for your child and family.) Our family had really enjoyed the discoveries made through this book: Masters of Deception: Escher, Dali & the Artists of Optical Illusion (Al Seckel). This website will give you a “feel” for the content: http://www.illusionworks.com/mod/

Dorling Kindersley’s bound to have something. They’re ace.
