The Master of all Pop-Up Books!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: Pop-up Book (Hardcover)
From a paper-engineering point of you, this book is absolutely amazing! The book is so very inspiring if you are looking to create your own pop-ups because it really showcases what can be done when you start thinking creatively. I was astounded the first time I saw it - it was the first Robert Sabuda book I purchased and I've been a fan ever since! I simply can't fault this pop-up book and I think it is guaranteed to have both children and adults in awe!
Although the book only has 12 pages, you get your money's worth because there are lots of smaller pop-ups on each page. The story is presented well and the pop-ups are very well-designed. The illustrations and colours used have a very vintage-feel; they are not modern but they are in-keeping with the story. One of my pet-peeves when it comes to pop-up books has to be poorly constructed mechanisms and dysfunctional pop-ups - I am pleased to say there is no such problem here! This is a brilliant pop-up book and it would make a lovely gift!
