The beautiful illustration in the book bring out the magic and enchantment of the story. From one of the reveiwers "Each page contains a large pop-up and a small booklet which tells part of the story. And each mini-book contains small pop-ups too. There’s a cyclone that really twists, a wizard’s balloon that sails into the sky, holographic foil creates a true, sparkling Emerald City made even greener with the included green glasses for the reader"
Alice in the wonderland is another classic. According to a reviewer on Amazon, "This book is a masterpiece and a work of art, as far as I’m concerned. It is also the kind of book I always dreamed of having as a child. Every page has been lovingly and painstakingly hand-crafted to bring all your favorite scenes to life. You’ll feel like you’re right there in Wonderland!"
J.M. Barrie’s classic 1902 tale have captivate the imagination of many children. "Each of the six page spreads has an amazing pop-up in the center as well as a collection of smaller pages–each with more pop-ups–that tell the story of Peter Pan. Altogether there are 28 pop-ups. It’s an awfully big adventure. " Amazon reviewer.
This pop up book bring this classic to life. "Moby Dick, the pop-up is a well-crafted book with excellent, detailed 3D engineering – the Pequod rises majestically from the pages in all its rigged glory and many other pop-ups on every page. Melville’s story of Ahab and the whale is brought to life for the first time in a 3D graphic novel format and Ita is to be commended for his creativity in presenting a classic in a spellbinding, novel format that is sure to captivate readers young and old alike.
