This isn't a pop-up fairytale book, just a series of photos,
This review is from: The Fairytale Princess: Seven Classic Stories from the Enchanted Forest (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This isn't a pop up story book so don't make the same mistake as me and get taken in by the description and photos on Amazon. What you're buying is a series of 7 fairytales accompanied by a series of one dimensional photos of paper sculptures. The stories are told in the traditional way and printed in large, plain black lettering. The photos themselves are all rather dark and gothic and certainly not meant for a really young child. I'm giving a 3* review because I feel disappointed and somewhat cheated by the lack of pop-ups. There's no magic, no sparkle, no colour. I was going to go with a 2* review but the overall quality of the presentation and size of the book has made me add an extra star. My granddaughter, the best person in the world to give a true review of this type of book, doesn't like it, doesn't want to look at it and was vaguely spooked by the dark images.
