From the back of the book:
“A Christmas Carol: A Pop-Up Book invites you to experience Dickens’s beloved tale in an entirely new way. With an animated Scrooge, a towering Ghost of Christmas Future in a bone-chilling graveyard, and finely crafted Victorian tableaux, every spread will delight and dazzle.”
I was amazed at the intricacy that went into creating this mesmerizing book. The author has created a variety of pop-up books that use his wonderful talent as an artist and an editor. Each page is accompanied by a little companion booklet that explains the scene you are looking at.
The first booklet tells the reader about Charles Dickens and why A Christmas Carol has had such a wide appeal to audiences throughout the years. Each subsequent book takes you on the journey faced by Ebenezer Scrooge.
I really loved this book, but I found a couple pages difficult to close and I worried I might tear the pop-ups.
This is a wonderful addition to my Christmas book collection, as well as my yearly decorations. Just lovely!
