Overview

An innovative pop-up book with big machine surprises on every page.

A gracefully engineered series of pop-ups, Jan Pienkowski Transportation Books by Jan Pienkowski includes Big Machines; Boats; Planes and Other Things That Fly; Trucks and Other Working Wheels. Turning the page sends each machine into motion: a man in a cherry picker puts a star on top of a Christmas tree, a ladder reaches from fire engine to tree-stranded cat, a balloon levitates high above the page and a speedboat tilts up to pull a water-skier. Many spreads present an amusing situation as well as a moving object: in "cement mixer," for example, a dog blithely high-steps through the cement. Such lighthearted narrative elements, as well as the skill of the pop-ups, project these bright cartoon books above the pop-up crowds.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreSThis colorful series of sturdy, square books features impressive paper engineering. A tow truck lifts a car, a tugboat tows an ocean liner, a bulldozer pushes earth, and a helicopter's rotor twirls. The cast features expressive faces with skin shades from white to pink to brown to blackthe moving man pushing the piano into the truck looks appropriately distressed, as do the rowers in the rowboat. The bold, bright illustrations with heavy black outlines are reminiscent of the work of Byron Barton; they will work well with young audiences. Must-buys for libraries that include pop-ups in their collections or for use in preschool storyhours.Lisa Falk, Palos Verdes Library, CA
