Overview

From the makers of the cult classic Pop-Up Book of Phobias comes a satirical celebration of celebrities gone wild. Everyone has a bad day now and then. But when superstars fall apart in public, it's international news! The Pop-Up Book of Celebrity Meltdowns puts you front and center as ten of the most spectacular public crack-ups of our day unfold before your eyes. Open the page to trigger a wardrobe malfuntion and watch as Janet Jackson bares all at the Super Bowl . . . Pull the tab and see Tom Cruise leap up on Oprah's couch like an excited puppy . . . From the aerial view of a news copter, watch as a phalanx of squad cars pursues O. J. Simpson's Bronco in slow motion. . . .

Brought to life with hilariously humorous caricatures and stunningly ingenious paper engineering, this deluxe, handcrafted gift book proves once and for all that celebrities are just like the rest of us, only much, much more so.

I bought this as a gift. But once I saw it, I knew that it had to go on my bookshelf. If you like pop up books (who doesn't) and are amazed by the stupidity of the famous and almost famous, you'll get a laugh out of this book. And best of all...you don't have to read the words. :)
