Product Description

Amazon Review

Trade is booming for Wallace and Gromit's Wash'n'go window-cleaning service and love is in the air as Wallace falls for the owner of the local wool shop, the delightful Wendolene Ramsbottom. But with Wallace's new invention, a knit- o-matic machine, sheep rustlers and Wendolene's malevolent pooch on the prowl, life is about to get much more interesting.

This wonderful pop-up book allows the world of Nick Park's Wallace and Gromit to spring to life and captures all the freshness and fun of the award-winning series. As with the cartoon, there are very few words, the action is all in the pictures and, with plenty of tabs to pull and flaps to lift, the action moves in 3-D. This is the closest you will get to the cartoon without a video player. (Ages 4 to Adult) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars World Book Day 24 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For World Book Day my 6 year old wanted to be Shaun the Sheep, but the image with the purple zig-zag across his middle as in this book. The school asks the children to dress up as the character AND bring the book. This arrived just in time, so a very happy 6 year old sheep went to school that day! Thank you

This is the second book (Close shave) that I have purchased my grandchildren love it, the pop ups are fab. The only problem I have is that my grandchildren are 1 & 2 and adore this book, it's their absolute favourite, but they want to pull on the pop ups and they have been torn on the first one. This one is handled differently now, I make sure that I'm with them and only let them pull when there on my knee....Great buy and I would purchase again.....
