    Great books popping up all over

    Books -January 2005

    By Judy Belanger

    I always have been intrigued by pop-up books. Now they are getting more intricate and are filled with finer detail. New books contain fascinating pictures that can be enjoyed by all ages while presenting favorite classic stories. Many pages have fragile parts that require adult supervision to ensure they survive to be enjoyed for many years.

    THE MAGICAL POP-UP WORLD OF WINNIE THE POOH, by A. A. Milne, illustrated by Andrew Grey, Dutton Books, $24.99; ages 4-8.

    , by Lewis Carroll, illustrated by Robert Sabuda, Little Simon, $24.95; ages 4-10.

    This classic tale literally unfolds as you turn the six pages. The story is included along the side of each page with fold-out sections and smaller pop-ups. The scenes show Alice in the garden ready to follow the White Rabbit with a pull-up box allows the reader to peek down the hole after Alice. The pages include her visit with the Duchess and the baby, Alice at the tea party with the Mad Hatter and the Rabbit and the croquet game with the Queen of Hearts. This version is a great way to introduce the story of Alice and fun for older children to watch as it unfolds. Robert Sabuda has also done The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and many other books in this format.

    AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL: A POP-UP BOOK, illustrated by Robert Sabuda, Little Simon, $26.95; all ages.

    POPPING UP AROUND WALT DISNEY WORLD, by Jody Revenson, art and paper engineering by Tanya Roitman, Disney Editions, $24.95; all ages.

    THE GIRL WHO LOVED TOM GORDON: A POP-UP BOOK, by Stephen King, adapted by Peter Abrahams, illustrated by Alan Dingman, paper engineering by Kees Moerbeek, Little Simon, $24.95; ages 10 and up.
