Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Those who have puzzled over how pop-up books work can learn about them from the master in Let's Make It Pop-Up by David A. Carter and James Diaz. Diagrams and explanations help readers make eight pop-up creations, from butterflies to gingerbread houses, with one project per page. Each has no more than eight steps plus key photos, and an accompanying example of the completed pop-up. The back of the book contains the paper materials needed, but after some practice, intrepid craftspeople should be able to use the instructions to make pop-ups of their own design.

Two master paper engineers working together make this the easiest make-your own-pop-up book yet! The book design has two purposes: First, the reader can see the finished pop-up cards. Second, by following the clear illustrated instructions and using the already pre-cut, printed-in-full-color pieces in the envelope at the back of the book, he or she can duplicate the finished cards. The folding and gluing proceeds from simple to difficult, allowing creative children to grow in knowledge of the principles that guide the designers of movable books. A box with a saw, a blooming flower, even a fluttering butterfly are among the movable effects attained. The use of assorted patches of colorful papers as background art for all the pages is a little overwhelming and unnecessary, especially as it is never explained. 2004, Little Simon, Ages 8 up.
