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.
