The many faces of illusion are explored in this episode of the award-winning series, as LeVar Burton hosts another lively program. In the featured story, a boy can no longer keep his beloved dog, and he begins to regard a brush as a substitute pet. The brush becomes animated and takes on the characteristics of a real dog. Reading Rainbow: Brush also looks at the work created by 3-D animation artists, and offers a trip to a site of parade float makers. Kid-reviewed books include Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg and Egg-Carton Zoo by Rudi Hass and Hans Blohm.
