For myself and my child - buy this book!
H. D. Urban
This cute book's simple animation coupled with a simple story is an adorable read, especially with the pop-up/interactive pages throughout.

I knew the book was going to be small, that's not what makes the book so disappointing.

This pop-up book for adults and kids alike is short, but beautifully illustrated with a poetic theme that I found suprisingly emotional.

A lovely work that you'll return to time and again.

A simple tale that's been beautifully told, perfect for all ages. I enjoyed it as much as my 6 year old daughter. The illustrations and pop-up details are fabulous and fun.

I have been a fan of Seonnas for only a year. I love her art. I think she's great. So when I found out that she made a pop up book I was psyched. Totally worth the price. If you are a fan of her art work or just someone that appreciates art then be sure to check this out.

The only quarm I had was that there were a couple of pages that were just standard and had nothing cool going on. But the colorful artwork made up for the lack of pop up.

Overall the book was a great buy and is really cool. I highly reccommend it.

I bought this book for myself several years ago because I thought it was really cute. The paintings/illustration are nice, but the author tries way too hard to make this rhyming story sound smart and well-written when it really isn't. The author sounds like she's rambling and prattling on just to hear herself speak. It just doesn't work because the half her story doesn't match the book. Other than the cute pictures, the book really isn't a children's book. Some of the words are too advanced, though it does attempt to have a nice moral, even if a bit pretentious in its wannabe philosophical way. My husband thought it was weird and awkward too.

Also, the pop-ups in the book are inconsistent. Didn't like that. It's a 34-page book (so let's say 17 sections) and there's a big chunk in the middle where there aren't any pop-ups at all. It's 9 out of 17 sections that have no pop-ups; that's over 50% of the book. I'm giving this book 2.5 stars at best.

For myself and my child - buy this book! it is highly inventive, and the joy in my daughter's eyes when she sees (and operates herself) the carefully crafted moving parts would be worth it alone, but the message it contains is a lasting one for both adults AND children.

This was a very disappointing purchase. I knew the book was going to be small, that's not what makes the book so disappointing. The pop ups are too simple, as well as the text. It reads like it was written by a first grader.
I should have believed the other reviewers.
