Editorial Reviews

There are simple pop-up books. And then there is the work of Robert Sabuda.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Reigning prince of paper construction Sabuda has fashioned the classic carol into a crisp, 3D holiday greeting, somewhat similar in style to his Christmas Alphabet (1994). Each spread contains festively colored background panels sprinkled with white text and featuring two spectacularly intricate, snow-white pop-ups; one takes center stage and the other is hidden beneath a gatefold flap. In a welcome update, Sabuda's witty take on the tune's verses depicts "four calling birds" as emerging from a cuckoo clock and "eleven ladies dancing" as ballerinas pirouetting inside a child's musical jewelry box. The design is sturdy enough to withstand repeated readings, provided that it's treated as a book, not a toy. All ages. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
This pop-up version of the familiar carol deserves to be wrapped carefully with the most delicate ornaments, to be brought down each holiday season to be savored anew. Intricate, white paper cutouts form three-dimensional versions of each of the gifts listed in the song. They gifts are made more realistic in this version. For instance, the four calling birds are in a cuckoo clock and the eight maids a-milking are gingerbread cookies.
