3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Gail Cooke HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 5, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Yes, "Pets Go Pop" is the title of this book, and those colorful, funny animals do more than go pop when the book is opened - they gallop, leap, jump, and have a jolly good time as each friendly creature carries a laughing child on its back.

The imaginative Staake has turned lions, giraffes, elephants, gorillas, rhinos and all manner of animals into pets for youngsters to enjoy. Why, these pets are so well trained that they even board a bright yellow bus to go to school.

Moe than a parade of bright pop-ups these pages are filled with 3-D adventures, and pets are identified as "Cool Pet," "Dry Pet," etc. It's fun to ask young readers why they think the pets were given certain names.

Happy to say that this is also a sturdy book offering many hours of "pet popping." Plus, a gigantic 3 ˝ foot poster is included - a veritable army of animals to decorate a wall.

Enjoy!

The popup is fantastic. Love the artist. Plenty to look at for a 4 year old.

Too bad I have to be there as the 1.5 yr old will destroy the delicate popups.

As a children's librarian, I had a love/hate relationship with pop-up books. I loved them because they were fantastically cool, so cool that kids always wanted to check them out, which was great. What I didn't like was how quickly the ones that were for circulation fell apart, or even worse, some of the more elaborate pop-up books were turned into reference books and could not be checked out at all. As a children's librarian, pop-up books frustrated me. Now, however, I buy books as a mother, and I just love pop-up books.

As much as I want to jump in and write about the mechanics of Pets Go Pop!, I'll stick to my formula and write about the text first. The text is simple and it works. I don't buy pop-up books for the writing, so if is at all amusing, I am happy. And I am happy.

In general, the only way that Bob Staake's artwork could possibly be improved would be to make it 3D, like a pop-up book, like Pets Go Pop! The engineering of this book is beyond amazing. My husband is an engineer and mechanics of this book fascinated and baffled him. He kept opening and closing the book to see how everything fit together until my son had enough and took the book back. My son doesn't yet appreciate engineering; he just loves the way the crazy, colorful animals jump off of the page every time he opens the book. So far, this book has stood up to my Tornado Thomas. That also makes me happy.

And the poster that comes with this book? I would have bought this book solely for that poster. It's awesome.
