Review

". . . by far one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen." (Evolving Beings )

" 'Marvelous' - filled with marvels - is the appropriate word for Chuck Fischer's rendition of Dickens's A Christmas Carol." (Gene Shalit )

About the Author

Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was one of the most prolific authors of the nineteenth century. In his many short stories, plays, novellas, and novels, he created some of literature's most memorable characters.

Chuck Fischer's paintings hang in some of the finest residences in the world. His designs have been reproduced on holiday ornaments and home furnishings, including wallpaper and fabrics in the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum. He is the author of six previous pop-up books: The White House, Great American Houses and Gardens, Christmas in New York, Christmas Around the World, In the Beginning, and Angels: A Pop-Up Book. He lives in New York and Florida.

I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of Chuck Fischer's pop up books. I love pop up books in general. There was this awesome exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History in DC that focused on the history and different types of pop up books. I was thrilled to see one of Fischer's books as well as a video explaining the process of creating his wonderful works of art. I love his books because they're just like magic by bringing these scenes into 3D.

If you ever wanted a book to get you into the holiday spirit, this is it. Immediately as soon as you open up the cover, the holiday classic jumps right at you. The pictures are absolutely gorgeous and really bring to life this classic holiday tale. My favorite is the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. Personally this has always been my favorite Ghost throughout the entire story but seeing it in all its terror and glory was outstanding here. It's exactly how I pictured it to be and the presentation is haunting and magnificent.

The only tiny blip was that one of the scenes can be easily missed because it's tucked inside of another scene. I almost didn't see it had it not been for me pondering why that certain page was thicker than the other pages. Since it's s tucked in and has to be manually opened, I suggest being quite fragile with it. The book is not something that has to be opened with gloved hands and put behind a glass case but I would recommend handling it carefully as not to tear the pop ups in anyway.

Included with the book is the complete text of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, broken up in five booklets (including one with a nifty cover). This is nice because it breaks up the reading.

When I opened the first page of the book Goddess gasped. She thought it was beautiful and so will you. Each page is exquisitely detailed and comes with a little pocket book telling the story of A Christmas Carol.

A Christmas Carol: A Pop-Up Book by Chuck Fischer (and of course Charles Dickens) is gorgeous! I was so so happy to be able to review this book and am equally excited to be able to read this book to the kids around the holidays! Callan will love it. It is interactive. He can sit and look at all the pop-ups and the amazing pictures as I read from each page's pamphlet. We all know the story of A Christmas Carol, and this book brings the story alive. I do not want to share it with my kids, it so beautifully put together, but of course, I will. It is too exquisite not to share! I highly recommend this as a gift, or get one just to keep for yourself to cherish over the years! Amazing book!

This beautiful re-imagining of Charles Dickens's timeless fable, A Christmas Carol: A Pop-Up Book features artist Chuck Fischer's richly painted depictions of the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, brought to life in intricate pop-up scenes by paper engineer Bruce Foster.

I cannot say enough good things about Chuck Fisher's pop-up books!! A Christmas Carol is a timeless story, but now enriched in a pop up book! The colors are rich and vibrant, and the pop-ups are so creative and detailed. The paper they are printed on is thick and of high-quality, so it will last for many many years. Included with the book is a small pamphlet that details Charles Dicken's life. There are also five, removable booklets that have wonderful illustrations that have the entire text of A Christmas Carol. This is definitely a keepsake and one to treasure. It would be perfect for gift giving this upcoming holiday season or get one for yourself. It is truly a remarkable piece of art with a timeless story to show and tell again and again.

This is a beautiful book. The pop-ups are amazing in their detail and dimension. Most components are even illustrated on the back side of the display!

Pop-up books are so nifty, having that appeal of feeling like you can really get into that world. There are lots of nooks and crannies to study here and enjoy.

I recommend opening pages slowly, to ensure longer life, and to fully appreciate the construction. Six booklets are included, tucked into their respective pockets.

A treasure to view every holiday season!

I purchased this to enjoy with my 8.5-year-old daughter, who loves pop-up books, especially those by Robert Sabuda (we own several of his works). Although it is beautifully-made and has some interesting and unique features, I took one star off because not all of the pop-ups open smoothly and some need extra care to be tucked back in - which makes me wonder about its durability. We are very careful with books in my family, but even then, some of these pop-ups may not bear up to repeated reading/browsing.

The story itself is contained in five little booklets which also contain interesting information and trivia about Dickens with lots of archival photographs of the period etc. but the font is too tiny to make for comfortable reading and certainly does not hold up to reading with young children, which is a pity because this is a story meant to be read with the young and I almost wish they had come up with an abridged version of the story.

The pop-ups are beautiful and engaging - depicting highlights from the story, focusing mainly on Scrooge's encounter with the Spirit of Christmas past, present, and future. The last pop-up is especially striking and had my daughter oohing and aahing in delight. I think this makes a nice addition to anyone's Christmas book collection, but it could have done with some improvements.
