Overview

Animals clap, a band marches in time, and smiling notes slide up and down the staff--there is music and movement on every page of this jamming, jazzy pop-up. From the creators of the Amazing Pop-Up Grammar Book and the Amazing Pop-Up Multiplication Book, here is a fun-filled introduction for beginning musicians. Lively lessons on rhythm, notes, scales, time, and tempo build gradually to a music-making finale where readers can play a real keyboard to accompany a pop-up animal chorus.

Kate Petty and Jennie Maizels have created a unique series of books that take the terror out of difficult topics through an irresistible combination of quips, hints, exuberant illustrations, and ingenious paper mechanics

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Chernak
This is indeed an "eye-popping" and "unique" music book, with its "flaps, tabs, word balloons and friendly, dancing creatures" that promises to teach youngsters the elements of music. The colors are eye-popping, too, and so is the sheer volume of stuff competing for attention on each square inch of every page of this sturdy board book that has a probably unprecedented number of push-pull tabs. However, by the time you get to the end, with its ingenious keyboard that actually plays sharps and flats as well as white keys, you may be too exhausted to enjoy the Really Truly Amazing Pop-Up pi�ce de resistance that fairly attacks as you turn that last page! The paper engineering created and copyrighted by Damian Johnston is actually quite remarkable. But it remains to be seen as to whether a youngster can learn amidst so much clutter. The board book concept--as well as the cute kitty and bunny and wooden soldier friends--also seems rather patronizing for the publisher-suggested age group of 8 and up.
