Peter Pan: A Classic Collectible Pop-Up
by Robert Sabuda
Ages 4-8 14 pages Little Simon November 2008 Hardcover    

The classic story of Peter Pan is re-invented in a new dimension with this elaborate pop-up edition of the tale. Here, the illustrations literally bring the story to new heights, with intricate multi-layered pop-up illustrations for each of the major events of the story. The single pop-ups at the center of each page will grab the readerís attention and the smaller mini books (which include additional text and pop-ups) embedded on the pages add even greater appeal.

The masterful art will entice children to try to quickly collapse the illustrations to see what the next page will deliver. Though the book will likely be enticing to children of all ages, the delicate nature of each page requires a gentle touch and makes the book inappropriate for young children who are unable to understand the level of care necessary to flip through these pages.

Readers may shy away from a new edition of a classic story such as Peter Pan, looking instead for a new story to share and discover. No one should be deterred from purchasing this book for that reason. These unique illustrations deliver a brand new experience to children, regardless of whether or not they have read the story before.

Peter Pan blends storytelling and art to make a magical story even more magical and will be a worthy and timeless addition to any childís book collection.
