If you ever wanted a book to get you into the holiday spirit, this is it. Immediately as soon as you open up the cover, the holiday classic jumps right at you. The pictures are absolutely gorgeous and really bring to life this classic holiday tale. My favorite is the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. Personally this has always been my favorite Ghost throughout the entire story but seeing it in all its terror and glory was outstanding here. It's exactly how I pictured it to be and the presentation is haunting and magnificent.
The only tiny blip was that one of the scenes can be easily missed because it's tucked inside of another scene. I almost didn't see it had it not been for me pondering why that certain page was thicker than the other pages. Since it's s tucked in and has to be manually opened, I suggest being quite fragile with it. The book is not something that has to be opened with gloved hands and put behind a glass case but I would recommend handling it carefully as not to tear the pop ups in anyway.
Included with the book is the complete text of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, broken up in five booklets (including one with a nifty cover). This is nice because it breaks up the reading.Read more ›

I cannot say enough good things about Chuck Fisher's pop-up books!! A Christmas Carol is a timeless story, but now enriched in a pop up book! The colors are rich and vibrant, and the pop-ups are so creative and detailed. The paper they are printed on is thick and of high-quality, so it will last for many many years. Included with the book is a small pamphlet that details Charles Dicken's life. There are also five, removable booklets that have wonderful illustrations that have the entire text of A Christmas Carol. This is definitely a keepsake and one to treasure. It would be perfect for gift giving this upcoming holiday season or get one for yourself. It is truly a remarkable piece of art with a timeless story to show and tell again and again.
Fischer has retold Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol with magically intricate paper art. Each page unfolds to amazing figures that leap off the page. The images are amazingly detailed and take the reader to Victorian England. Each page also has an insert booklet where the reader can read related chapters from Dicken's novel.
Fischer has done images for the title page (a Victorian London street scene), You Will Be Haunted by Three Spirits (a ghost trailing chains and weights, The Ghost Of Christmas Past (a spirit rising from a candle), The Ghost of Christmas Present (a harvest king with a magnificent feast is portrayed), The Last Of The Spirits (a towering black figure which fills the viewer with awe), and God Bless Us Every One (showing Scrooge and Tiny Tim in a glorious conclusion)
Chuck Fischer is an artist whose designs have been replicated world-wide in paintings, holiday ornaments and home furnishings. His designs include wallpaper and fabrics in the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum. He has done six previous paper engineering books. I was lucky enough to get a copy of his glorious Angels last year. These books are destined to become family heirlooms for the joy they bring to the viewer and are highly recommended for all readers, whether young or young at heart.
