Editorial Reviews

Abby McGanney Nolan
…the bright white visions that spring forth each time you turn the page are little wonders.
—The Washington Post
Kirkus Reviews
As a visual bonbon for holiday giving or display, Sabuda offers a small, Christmas-themed stocking stuffer. Linked by a short verse extolling winter's whites and "the peaceful sounds of nature's gifts," the eight pop-ups-all of them different from those in his Christmas Alphabet (1996) and Night Before Christmas (2002)-are bright white, with the occasional glint of silver or gold foil, and set nicely into abstract one- or two-color backgrounds. The twirling skater is particularly impressive, but from the opening whirl of snowflakes to the closing view of a pair of doves tying the bow on a gift, this brims with seasonal joie de vivre. (Novelty. 6-8)

Meet the Author

Robert Sabuda

Robert Sabuda is one of the most innovative and inventive children's book creators and is known worldwide for his amazing pop-up paper engineering. His books include Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Twelve Days of Christmas, The Night Before Christmas, The Winter's Tale, Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, to name but afew, have garnered numerous awards and have made the New York Times bestseller lists on many occasions. He lives in New York City.

Biography

Pop-up books are true oddities of children's publishing. They are charmingly quaint and old-fashioned, yet eternally popular. They've been around for ages, but precious few creative souls set out to become pop-up artists. This, however, is not the case with Robert Sabuda, who seems to have been born to make pop-up books.

Sabuda made his first step toward becoming one of the most ingenious pop-up artists in contemporary publishing as a very young child. He grew up in a household where books were held in the highest regard and reading was always encouraged. He has fond memories of being read to by his mother when he was a little boy. Sabuda's first encounter with a pop-up book occurred in a dentist office. Anxious about his appointment, young Robert's mother read a pop-up book with him to take his mind off the dentist's chair. He was instantly hooked.

Sabuda's background as a gifted artist also played a key role in his future career. As a kid, he was fortunate enough to be encouraged in his artistic pursuits by his teachers and his parents, his father being a mason and carpenter. He inherited from his dad a lifelong fascination with construction and avidly studied the pop-up books he received as gifts to find out what made them work. Imaginative and curious, he even made his own pop-ups out of discarded manila envelopes his mom brought home from her office.

This childhood hobby would prove invaluable, as an older Sabuda set out on a career in children's books. He got his start as a journeyman illustrator working with such writers as Eugene Bradley Coco (The Fiddler's Son; Wishing Well) and Jay Patrick Lewis (Earth Verses and Water Rhymes). He even worked on adaptations of Walt Whitman classics geared toward young readers.

Sabuda's first solo effort was Saint Valentine (1992), a retelling of the ancient tale of a humble Roman physician who brings about a miracle. The focal point of this charmingly simple story is Sabuda's illustrations, a series of intricate, exquisite mosaics made of marbleized and hand-painted paper that simulate the look of early Christian art. Proof of a craftsmanship rarely seen in children's books, Saint Valentine and its sequel, Tutankhamen's Gift, revealed the illustrator's uncanny talent for creating unconventional art.

In 1994, Sabuda discovered his niche with The Christmas Alphabet, a seasonal delight filled with eye-catching pop-ups and crafted with an elegance as appealing to adults as to children. The Christmas Alphabet was the first in a long line of remarkable paper-engineered wonders covering a wide range of subject matter. He would adapt famous tales (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland), tackle contemporary issues (the Help the Animals series), and tell completely original stories (Winter's Tale).

Some of Sabuda's finest work has been done in collaboration with his partner and good friend Matthew Reinhart. Between them, these two pop-up geniuses have produced stunning work, including two wonderful science-oriented series, the Young Naturalist's Pop-up Handbook and the Encyclopedia Prehistorica. And although each has become increasingly involved in independent projects, they continue to influence each other in subtle and dramatic ways.

In explaining the attraction of the pop-up genre to today's technologically savvy kids, Sabuda says,. "I think [kids] are drawn to pop-up books because so much in their world today to them seems like magic, electronically," Sabuda told Barnes & Noble.com. "So, when they see one of my pop-ups books and they open it, they're amazed that it's occurring just by turning the page... that there's no electronics or bells or whistles to make that happen. I know that just from a creative part, they love seeing that magic occur."

Good To Know

As a boy, Sabuda took tap lessons at a local dance school, where he also furthered his artistic abilities by designing backdrops.

Shortly after graduating from Pratt Institute in New York City, Sabuda made ends meet by designing boxes for women's underwear.

Sabuda's first work in children's publishing was as an illustrator of coloring books, which books based on such popular movie characters as the very non-kid-friendly Rambo.

Sabuda shared some fun facts about himself in our interview:

"My first job was as a hardware stock boy and I LOVED it. To this day, when someone says 'Home Depot,' I start salivating like Pavlov's dog."

"I'm inspired to create the work that I do because I really don't know how to do anything else. Besides it's a bit of a curse, too. I always have so many ideas that I feel like I'll never get to them all."

"I don't know how to drive a car and have no desire to learn."

"My partner (author/illustrator) Matthew Reinhart and I just got an 1830's farmhouse in up state New York. Having it renovated has been a great project. It's like working on a huge pop-up that you can live in."

"To unwind, I do yoga, but my practice is pretty average. But I can do a headstand, away from the wall, which for me is a really big deal!"

    Excellent book

    The book is outstanding. The seller is the worst I have dealt with online. I thought I was dealing with a branch of the Federal Government. Their communications simply STINKS. AVOID THEM at all costs.

    Robert Sabuda's Pop Up Books are so creative and so much fun!

    This book celebrates winter in a unique way. It is a book I often give to my other grandmother friends to share with their grandchildren at Christmas time. Going through them together is a special treat for both!
    I have all the larger Christmas books Robert Sabuda has done (as well as some of his others) in my own library and consider this collection a very special one to be looked over again and again for children of all ages.

    Super book to give as gift or keep for yourself.

    Robert Sabuda once more illustrates in the manner for which he is famous. I put this book on the coffee table for guest to ooh and awe over. Grandkids handle this carefully so they don't tear the beautiful cut outs. Enjoy this and get one for a friend

    Awesome Pop Ups

    This pop up was a hit as a stocking stuffer for my daughter and we definately plan to share it with some other children with a crafts activity about making snowflakes.<BR/><BR/>I was surprised that such a small book would contain such stunning pop ups. Now, many hesitate on pops up figuring the children will quickly tear them up. With my experience, most of the pop ups books which I started introducing to my child when she was a toddler have help up quite well. The secret is age appropriate parental supervision. The appropriate age for each child will vary, but I can assure anyone my child was definately a high energy child.<BR/><BR/>Nevertheless, being consistant to introduce the book with warnings about how to treat pop up books. The modern ones are relatively sturdy, but of course have their limits. Pop Ups are a quality time opportunity to show children that if they treat books well, they will last a long time.<BR/><BR/>While she was younger, when we finished a pop up book, we'd always put it out of reach. We lost maybe one or two well loved pop up books, but aside from the casualities, since elementary school, she can be trusted not to abuse pop up books and enjoy their fascinating scenes.
