Editorial Reviews

People
“From the first page, it’s obvious that pop-up master Sabuda has done it again. A gem.”
People Magazine
"From the first page, it’s obvious that pop-up master Sabuda has done it again. A gem."
"In Him, Storyteller Meets Architect," The New York Times said of Robert Sabuda. There seems no doubt that this pop-up artist and paper engineer has taken three-dimensional book art to a new creative level. "People always ask where we get our ideas," he once told an interviewer. "There's a never-ending chain of ideas that go on towards infinity." The Chronicles of Narnia Pop-up turns another exciting page in the ongoing Sabuda saga.
School Library Journal

Gr 3-5- Sabuda works his pop-up magic once again, designing for each of the seven Narnia books a multilayered scene that unfolds and rears up dramatically as the spread is opened. Four spreads also contain a smaller pop-up behind a corner flap. The painted art is equal to the complex articulations, depicting Aslan and the rest of the cast as colorful, boldly drawn figures. Except for a few quoted lines, the text consists entirely of terse plot summaries, but more would have just been a distraction. Don't expect this title to last very long, but do expect plenty of "Wow!" reactions from viewers.-John Peters, New York Public Library

Meet the Author

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over one hundred million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

Matthew Reinhart is a New York Times bestselling author, illustrator, and paper engineer for intricate pop-up books, including Cinderella: A Pop-up Fairy Tale and The Jungle Book.

Calling this a '14 page book' is an injustice. It really isn't a 14 page book, it is a 'Seven Wonders of the Narnia World'. Think of it this way - 14 pages - each 2 page spread represents one of the 7 Narnia books. Each 'book' pops out at you in an amazing representation. If you've read the Narnia books, you say 'ohh - yes.'. If you haven't read the books, well, I hope they say 'this is something you need to read'. It is delicate - don't let the youngest fingers turn the pages - do it for them. But it is indeed a beautiful engineering/art concept. The engineering is 'Robert Sabuda' for sure, but the artwork is 'Matthew Armstrong'. A former game designer/artist, he illustrated the children's Christmas book, 'The Blacksmith's Gift', helped on 'An Orphan's Promise', and from these moved to illustrating Narnia books. Yay, Matthew! Oh, and finally, I just love the 'bonus' pop-ups - some of the seven pages have an extra pullout - which 'pops up' another little scene! Really cool.

If you're looking for the whole majesty that is C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, this isn't it. BUT if you have read and loved the stories before, this will be a great way to introduce it to younger readers and tell them, from your point of view, all about Narnia while they look at the beautiful pop-outs and meet the characters for the first time.
