Too good for kids!By RobinNo, only kidding, this is of course a super book for your kids and you. I recently bought my first Robert Sabuda book, the 'The 12 Days of Christmas' (ISBN 0689808658) and what an amazing pop-up creation it is. What really pleased me was the half page flap on each right-hand page, so as well as a pop-up on each spread there is another to discover underneath this flap, twelve popups in all.The 'Night Before Christmas' book is even more dazzling and I bet it pushes to the limit what is possible with a mass-market pop-up book. The format is the same as '12 Days' (though there is no flap on the sixth spread) but it is more creative, just wait till you open spread three and eight reindeer don't just pop up they jump towards you at the same time, spread five has Santa popping above the top of the book. The last spread is the most ambitious, a little village arises, with six cottages and background clouds, pull a tab and Santa (printed on clear plastic) travels across a snowy gap in the clouds. The book is printed in flat graphic colors and there is a clever use of white card stuck on itself to create additional three-dimensional effects.Sabuda is to be congratulated on creating some stunning paper
magic that really does have to be seen to be believed. Children (and grown-ups) with a sense of wonder will find this pop-up book quite enchanting! Twas the night before christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse . . .Robert Sabuda brings Clement Clarke Moore's well known and much loved classic poem about the night before christmas to life with his stunning and intricate pop-ups.
