Robert Sabuda has created a resplendent pop-up version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the original publication. This glorious edition is told in a shorter version of L. Frank Baum's original text, with artwork in the style of W. W. Denslow. With sparkling touches of colored foil and Emerald City eyeglasses, this classic tale is certain to find an honored place on the loved ones bookshelf.
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the publication of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz, master paper engineer Robert Sabuda has created a pop-up version of Dorothy's adventures in Oz that fans will find challenging to resist. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter A rapidly spinning cyclone actually casts a breeze more than the startled reader's face. And the Emerald City positively glitters with green, especially when young readers try on the special tinted"Spectacles for You"provided inside a pocket on the page. Modeling his depictions of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and also the rest after W. W. Denslow's original art, Sabuda adds a third dimension that would have rocked Denslow's--and Baum's--world. The abridged text, supplied in minibooklets set onto each page, covers adequate basics for the Oz novice, but we recommend a read-aloud of the original, as well, for all of the glory and detail of Baum's fantastic tale. Sabuda's homage towards the classic is truly spectacular; even purists will gasp in delight in the sight of the humbug wizard floating away in his shiny green, gold, and blue hot-air balloon. This great introduction towards the story of Oz doubles as a fun collector's item. Glorious red poppies wave seductively in a field.
