A stunning achievement.

Robert Sabuda, master of the modern pop-up book, teams with poet Michael Rosen to celebrate a 2,000-year-old miracle.

Adults as well as school-age children will find this book amazing. Not the typical pop-up for young children.
I bought this for my granchildren and I was amazed at the fabulous complexity of the pop-ups. Robert Sabuda has outdone himself on this one.
This is not the typical book on Hanukah. The text tells a beautiful story of all the places in the world that the Jews have observed the candle lighting ceremony.The pop-ups illustrate the journeys.
When I shared it with my adult friends their eyes filled up.That's how beautiful it is.

As always, Robert Sabuda has created elegance personified with his intricate all white dimensional designs which are mounted against soft colors with designs illustrating the location of each scene. The text by Michael J. Rosen flows through the book as it describes the many places of Jewish settlement. And the flames of a Menorah can be seen in each scene, increasing by one light with each succeeding page-turn.

This book is sure to become a treasured family heirloom. It is visually stunning and the pages come to life with the three dimensional pop up rendition of the beautiful poem. The pop up art is extremely delicate - a tiny monkey on one side came with its tail bent.

I have to say that I have been collecting pop-up books since I was in high school - 40 years ago! I love them. My most favorite are by Robert Sabuda. He sets a high benchmark for excellence. This book did not disappoint. Some simple and some very elaborate pop-ups add to the story of the lighting of the chanuka candles. I found it an interesting (I am not Jewish, but love to learn about different cultures and religions) story and the pop-ups were a nice touch, highlighting key aspects. This is a book you might read to your younger children, who will delight in the surprise of the pop-ups, while letting older children discover it for themselves (after being instructed on how to carefully open and close the pop-ups to protect them from damage). It is a wonderful story of faith and miracles that those of any age would find inspiring.

Just a beautiful book. I bought it in March, after Chanukah. I have only had a chance to flip thru it, but the artistry is amazing! I can't figure out how he did cutouts that show such detail as clothing on a clothesline!

I want to sit down with my hubby and look thru the book together. It will be wonderful to display the pages during Chanukah, too.
