Review: The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz: A Commemorative Popup
The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz: A Commemorative Popup by L. Frank Baum
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is unlike anything else I have ever seen. A pop-up book, but that sounds so small compared to what this is, like referring to The Mona Lisa as some paint, or Michelangelo's David as a hunk of rock. This glorious work is told in a shorter version of L. Frank Baum's original text, with artwork in the style of W. W. Denslow(original Oz illustrator). With sparkling touches of colored foil and Emerald City eyeglasses, and complex pop-ups that are beautiful from all dimensions this is a work of art that deserves a special place on your family shelf.
