I have ordered this book before and I received a flimsy paper version of the book rather than the actual pop-up. I was very happy to see that I did indeed received the pop-up version. I bought this book for my granddaughter; I had bought this book for my son (her father) when he was a child and I am glad that I could get one for her in very good condition without having to take a second out on my mortgage to pay for it as this book is going for exorbitant amounts with certain vendors.

My son loves the original book and really loved the pop up book.

He has already ripped a few things off unintentionally, but most were easily fixed. I don't think it had anything to do with quality, so I'm keeping the rating at 5 stars.

I really love this book. I remember reading it when I was little and it always seemed filled with mystery, the beauty of the illistrations is immense in my [slightly biased] eyes. I hope that little kids now like it as much as I did when I was little, it's really worth it, a cute story, and a nice way to be put to bed.

More About the Author

Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny. Even though she died over 45 years ago, her books still sell very well. Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading. She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them. She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn't the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper. Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else - a writer of songs and nonsense.
