Jungle Book Takes City Boy's Breath 25 Oct. 2006
By Ron Lindsey - Published on
Format: Hardcover
When I first saw THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ (from the Robert Sabuda Studios), I was sure that nothing could surpass the complexity and paper engineering finesse exhibited. Then, MOMMY was released (and even though Maurice Sendak and Matthew Reinhart gave no credit to Eastman's ARE YOU MY MOTHER?, I still felt that I had seen another remarkable advance in pop-up book technology. Now, that I've held THE JUNGLE BOOK by Matthew Reinhart and sat in awe at his two-foot pop-up, I cannot even conceive of what could out-do this magical experience. I'm sure something will, and believe me, I want to be there when it happens.

Condensed classic with great pop ups 12 Nov. 2008
By Shasta's D - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is a condensed version of the original accompanied with wonderful pop-ups. It has six two-page spreads, but there is also at least one partial-page fold out on every spread (partial pages are half the size or smaller than the main page). The main spreads each have a large pop up. The partial pages, typically two mini two-page spreads themselves, all have a pop up per spread, too. When you turn some of the partial spreads, they trigger changes in the main spread. The pages are full of color, including the back sides of the pop ups. The font is easy to read.

The condensed text works in that you aren't left with gaping holes in the story if you don't know the full version. Know that it is condensed so your favorite part might not be included.

The large pop ups are fabulous and the smaller ones are interesting. For the most part, the pop ups open and close smoothly. I did have trouble with two small ones: -one has a part that is not properly glued and it catches when I try to close it -a part is supposed to spin, but mine spins only some of the time.

This book would be interesting for the very young (with help to deal with the pop ups), tweens/teens who are reading the original story, and collectors. It could spark interest for reluctant readers when paired with the original.

DESCRIPTION OF POP UPS - A description of the pop ups isn't as helpful in general, but it will give you an idea of how many pop ups are included. Also, it may provide insight as to what is included in this condensed version. The list gives the main pop up, then partial page pop ups included on that main spread.

Beautiful Pop Up Book! 30 Oct. 2008
By Lynn Ellingwood - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Pop Up book of The Jungle Book is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. It is amazing in it's scope. I love it madly. I use pop up books and other more dynamic books in my classroom because I teach ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages. Since reading English can be difficult, other stragegies can be used to entice students into reading English. The pop up books are facinating and ofteh not used in other cultures so they are great to intrigue students. The Jungle Book has an attachment to India and Asia so that helps my students also.

Amazing!!! 11 Jan. 2007
By Eclectic Nana - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is well designed and constructed. This book would belong on anyone's short list of TOP pop-up books. My 3 yr old grandchild adores my pop-up collection and this is one of her favorites - boys love this one also.

the Jungle Book: A Pop Up adventure. Much admired 16 Aug. 2013
By M. Lehmann - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was given as a baby gift for a newborn. The shower was a book shower, so books of all age levels were given. I noticed this book was being shared by all the nieces and nephews in attendance. They passed it from one to another, I watched their faces as they looked at the wonderful pop-ups. Every child there was enthralled by this book. Pretty good review right there.
