Review

"The idea of combining a graphic novel with pop-ups is brilliant." - Robert Sabuda"

More About the Author

Born in 1978, Sam Ita grew up in a small town near the Canadian border. He studied graphic design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. After working as a petticab driver and luggage salesman, Sam eventually answered a classified ad in the Village Voice, which led to his first paper engineering job.

Fantastic illustrations and the pop-ups are very detailed and clever.

I first glanced this book at a bookstore and immediately decided to put an order for myself.

Very ingenious in some of the pop ups, and it conveyed the story very well.

Format: Hardcover
Having been a long-time fan of Robert Sabuda's pop-up books, I couldn't wait to sample this offering from Sam Ita, who had been Sabuda's apprentice. Moby Dick, the pop-up is a well-crafted book with excellent, detailed 3D engineering - the Pequod rises majestically from the pages in all its rigged glory and many other pop-ups on every page. Melville's story of Ahab and the whale is brought to life for the first time in a 3D graphic novel format and Ita is to be commended for his creativity in presenting a classic in a spellbinding, novel format that is sure to captivate readers young and old alike.

I first glanced this book at a bookstore and immediately decided to put an order for myself. For a person who has not read this classic of American literature, this pop-up book of no more than 50 pages is a delightful and no less insightful journey. The visual and pop-up design is quite impressive, and the book spends as few pages to convey as much message, I guess. The reading experience is almost like watching a motion pitcture.

What a wonderful and fun book. I am museum docent and purchased this book to use with a piece of art work that is in the BMA's collection. However I found that I love this book for its beautiful color and 3 dimentional pop-up pictures. My 5 year old grandson also loves this book and never wants to put it down to go home. He recently moved away and wanted to take the book with him. Of course, I am going to order one for him so that he never has to put it down and can take it with him when ever he moves.

Format: Hardcover
Being a fan of literature and graphic novels, I felt that I could not in good conscience pass up such a unique item, and I was not dissapointed. The plotting of the story is effective, although it would probably be most enjoyed by people familiar with the plot, or young people getting exposed to the tale. However, the star of this show is the three dimensional artwork, which is fantastic and imaginative. The attention to detail is staggering, and fits very well with the narrative flow. I am well past the age where pop up books should be enthralling, but I can remember few more joyful reading experiences, at least in my adult life.

Was looking for a book for a 4 yr old, which was 'educational' but interesting enough to capture his interest. He's into action toys right now. When I saw this and the beautiful pop-up, I knew I'd found the right book. Best of both worlds...an introduction to a classic, with 3D illustration. Now must wait until Christmas to see if he agrees!!!!

This is the most elaborate pop-up book I've ever seen.
There's actually rigging run through the masts and sails
on the pop-up ship! The artwork is beautiful, imaginative,
and thoroughly amazing. The storytelling preserves the
essentials of the novel, in the best graphic-novel style.
This book might be too intricate for a very young child
to appreciate on their own, but it would be a fine thing
for a literature-loving adult to share with them.
