Review

Popville is a sweet, slender little pop-up book that illustrates the growth of a town from a single farmhouse to a thriving city in a series of stylized scenes that build, one upon the next, through a window cut out of the center of the page, so that each development literally overlays the ones beneath. My toddler has fallen in love with the book and its additive scenes, and the grownups I've shown it to finds it equally fascinating. The cutaway in the book's center is a genuinely clever bit of business that creates a sense of time's passage, and the climax (with a pair of foldouts on the sides of the pages) is filled with little gracenotes, like the bits of string that form the electric cables.” ―Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.net

This is a great little book. Kids love to see how the paper city develops from the beginning of the book to the end. The pop-ups are clever. There are even power lines.

I read about this book in the NY Times Book Review. As a collector of pop-up books I was intrigued by the description of the design and layout of the pop ups. It proved to be everything the review had said it would be; cleverly designed, artfully laid out and delightful. Bravo!
As to the seller I ordered the book on Amazon, from Itz a Book. The book arrived on time and well packaged. I would also highly recommend the seller.

for a book with no words this tells a great tale of how most western cities (especially american ones) are built. the images and graphics are simple and this adds to the stylised world the book creates. one of the best pop up books i own! well doen to the two authors who started this concept as a school project

This pop up is great for adults or older kids [8+]. Word-less [except at the very end where it outlines the build], it's well-done and would be a great gift for anyone interested in preservation; urban planning; architecture; social studies; or just for fun.

From a single building at the end of a road, to tall buildings and apartments, a city grows, as told through the pop-up art of this picture book. The text at the end of the book documents how cities grow and people come. Children ages 3-6 will engage with the colorful pop-up art in this picture book, and will think about how their own city grows.
