Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-6–Wickings presents an entire crafts workshop between two covers. The 3-D album opens with small diagrams of some common pop-up crease patterns and noise-making tricks, featuring a pop-up robot on the next spread as a sample, and goes on to include blank, slotted layouts for four pop-up scenes flanked by foldout sheets of perforated, pre-glued card stock parts to punch out, fold, and attach. Though this is no substitute for Joan Irvine's many books or David A. Carter and James Diaz's magisterial Elements of Pop-Up (Little Simon, 1999), it would make a welcome gift item for budding paper engineers.–John Peters, formerly at New York Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2010.

This book is not just a pop-up book - it is a Pop-Up Experience! Well crafted and delightfully designed, this book offers an amazing inside view (or should I say back-side view?) of just how pop-up books are engineered. There is animation on every page including the cover. From a printing and production standpoint, I am surprised that they could keep the cost of this book as low as they did. Full color, pop-ups, die cuts, foil embossing, tear offs... they even included the tape and a rubber band!? There is nothing else you need but time, imagination and this book to guide you, step by easy step into creating some of the most delightful pop-up scenes.

Each interactive make-your-own pop-up scene has a tear off instruction sheet that includes a Mini Master Class on each pop-up technique: Even Tent, Parallel Box, Rubber Band, Noise Maker, Triangle on a Tent, Spiral and more. If you put the pop-up pages together in order, the techniques get a little more advanced so, by the time you have put together all the pages, you have a pretty good working knowledge of how pop-ups are engineered PLUS some pretty nifty instructions to keep in the form of Mini Master Class "brochures".

I could not put this book down until I had finished all the pop-ups. And even though the pages are "finished", the book just keeps delighting me every time I open it. Kudos to the designer, the illustrator AND the printer/publisher: Well done!

The only thing I am puzzled about is the age suggestion: 3 to 8 years. Really? It should be 3 to 101. If you are looking for the ultimate pop-up book - whether a how-to or fun pop-up book - I HIGHLY recommend Pop-Up: Everything You Need to Create Your Own Pop-Up Book.

So. Much. Fun. (Oh, yeah, and I'm a 50+ year old).

Our children have loved pop-up books since the toddler years. When I saw this book in its pre-release state, I thought it sounded interesting to tucked it away in my Amazon 'save till later' cart. I came back to it when looking for a gift for our 8-year-old son and it hasn't disappointed at all. Our almost-9-year-old son loves it. The only drawback is that there aren't enough pop-ups for him to continue building. Excellent gift-giving idea!

This is a great book. It really shows you how a pop up is made. I did two pop ups with my eight year old granddaughter. She was fascinated by the creation of a popup dragon and castle. It's geared for children but you should really have an adult helping them

My advanced 4yo LOOOOVED this book! The instructions are involved but it was a fun challenge for him. He helped me find pieces and fold them, sometimes inserting them into slots and sticking them on pages. I did most of the heavy lifting but it was enlightening for him to see these flat pieces of paper turn into a dimensional sculpture. It helps that the book is very high quality- sturdy pages, printed on both sides, fantastic illustrations, and covers really great pop up technique- like sound makers! If I could critique it, I would say to add a story to the different projects and to PLEASE do more books with different themes- seasons, weather, etc.

Highly recommended for anyone between 3-100.

I got this book not for my grandchildren, but for my Daughter in law! My book theme this year for gifts was pop-ups and this was a good one! Unique and unusual- just like my DIL!

My 5 year old LOVES this book. It has some really great pop up scenes and we had so much fun putting it together. She's had it for a little over a year now. It's held up pretty well and she still likes to look through it fairly often. What's even better is the extra projects. Each scene has side projects for you to try with your own materials utilizing the folding techniques you just did. It not only teaches you how to assemble the scenes provided, but teaches you how to make your own. This book is loaded with hours of creative fun and I enjoyed it as much as my daughter did.

My 6 year old son got this book for Christmas and he loved it. Some of the folding was a bit too involved for him but, for the most part, he was able to complete most of the projects in this book.

For a pop up book, the paper quality is what matters and this book delivers. The paper used top notch and everything came together quite nicely.

The directions were very clear with ample examples of how to do things so other projects could be done along similar lines.

Loved this book.

I'm not a skilled pop-up designer by any means, but I think that this book makes a great follow-on to the series of books by Carol Barton. By using Carol's books first, you learn how to construct the various forms and tools used by a good paper-craft artist; and then this book provides additional inspiration and structures that can be used to expand one's practice in new ways.
