A Q&A with Author Matthew Reinhart

What book has had the most significant impact on your life?
Peter Spier's book Gobble, Grunt, Growl was my favorite as a child and as a young artist. The only words in the book were animal sounds, but the pictures really told the story. Mr. Spier is an amazing draftsman and while his creatures remained realistic, they all displayed such emotion and fun. He really knows how to set a scene of characters interacting without the use of a single word. All of his books share the same love of natural science, detail and whimsy. They inspired my drawings as a child and continue to now as a professional artist. I wish I could be half as good as him!

Q: You are stranded on a desert island with only one book, one CD, and one DVD--what are they?
A: The book: It would have to be a book with a lot of pictures and a lot of words! DK's Animal: The Definitive Visual Guide of The World's Wildlife could keep me occupied for a long time. The CD: That's tough, because I am constantly buying new music. I have current favorites like The Killers and Delerium, but being a long time Madonna fan, I would have to say her first self-titled album was her best. Its fun and fresh. The DVD: I would probably take one of the discs from The Simpsons: Complete Season 6. Its my favorite show on TV, and that was a brilliant season. I could watch over and over again!.

Q: What is the worst lie you've ever told?
A: Most of my lies are awful since I am such a terrible liar. My worst was back in 1st grade when my family lived in San Diego. My parents took me to the zoo every other weekend and I was a complete animal nut. So one day, I told my friend Rommel that I had a zoo in my backyard, complete with elephants, giraffes, and other wild beasts. He actually believed me! The silliest part of this lie was that I actually brought him over to see my "zoo," which did not exist. Rommell seemed unfazed when he caught my lie; children are pretty forgiving. I was one dumb kid!

Q: Describe the perfect writing environment.
A: To make pop-ups, I need lots of light, inspiration and thumping music! The studio where I make pop-ups is a simple office with large windows and filled with pop-up books in an old building in New York City. Thanks to satellite radio, we listen to all kinds of music (though I am partial to dance music). Being a child of the 80's, I also force my designers to listen to the 80's station almost everyday. We have a very casual, fun environment but are serious about the work we do. When I write, however, I need to be alone. I play quiet, soothing music in a small office at home. The office doubles as a toy room for my massive Transformers and Star Wars figure collections. When I have writer's block, I have plenty of toys to distract me!

Q: If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?
A: "Thanks for the fun and don't touch my toys!"

Q: Who is the one person living or dead that you would like to have dinner with?
A: My grandpa George, since he died before I was born and everybody in the family loved him so much. He really wanted a grandson but missed me by a few years. I'd like to get to meet him just once.

Q: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
A: I would like to be able to morph into any form I choose like Mystique from X-Men or Beast Boy from the Teen Titans. Kind of like a Transformer robot that can turn into anything!

From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. Probably best known for his joint projects with pop-up maestro Robert Sabuda, such as their recent Encyclopedia Prehistorica: Dinosaurs (2006), Reinhart adds to his solo ventures with this splashy Classic Collectible Pop-Up in the series' signature format (spreads featuring a central pop and attached booklets containing text and further pops). As in many contemporary pop-ups, this creation's spectacularly clever paper engineering relies on the inherent force of page-turns, not reader-manipulated flaps or pull-tabs, to drive smooth animations. Readers of all ages will marvel at how the simple act of opening and flattening a spread can induce a rat's metamorphosis into a footman, the twirling of palace dancers, and the snug sliding of an acetate glass slipper onto Cinderella's dainty foot. Less impressive are the cartoonlike watercolors, which frequently give rise to wispy-edged elements that aren't sufficiently contained to survive the die-cutting process unmarred. One of the story booklets is also formatted in a way that will confuse new readers. Despite flaws, though, the exciting dimensional art and numerous bells and whistles--not least the pearly pink jacket--should dazzle both kids and collectors alike. Jennifer Mattson

Cinderella picture books are everywhere since Cindy is the perennial favorite fairy tale. However, Matthew Reinhart illustrates the tale in a new dimension, the third one, in a way we've never seen Cindy before. He treats us to page after page of animated pop-ups, in the style that has made Robert Sabuda famous, not surprising since they are friends and have colloborated in the past.

Cinderella's head peeps from the fireplace, her stepmother's dress tightens as Cinderella pulls on her stays, the carriage sparkles silver with six white horses standing at attention, a black rat changes into a jolly coachman, the couples dance at the ball and Cinderella's finery vanishes at the stroke of midnight all as you turn the page. There's more than can be listed here and each of these intricate pop-ups have to be seen in action to be truly appreciated. I'm still going back and finding new details each time I turn a page.

The illustrations are loosely lined so the die cutting sometimes blurs the pictures, but there is too much magic in these pages for this to be a big concern. Of course, the book is not recommended for independent reading for children under five, but this is a book to be shared and loved together. It will be a bedtime favorite for countless little princesses.

My own library, overfilled with Cinderella books, doesn't begrudge the space needed to add this edition to its shelves. Hopefully we will get more fairy tales done in this style by Reinhart and/or Sabuda. Don't miss this one!

Format: Hardcover
For ages, people have been enchanted by the story of Cinderella. Told again and again throughout literary history by writers like Charles Perrault, Hans Christian Andersen, the Brothers Grimm and Walt Disney, this classic tale continually finds its way into the hearts and imaginations of children of all ages. In his latest work, illustrator and paper engineer extraordinaire Matthew Reinhart joins the ranks of these illustrious storytellers by breathing new life and a new kind of magic into a centuries-old story with CINDERELLA: A POP-UP FAIRY TALE.

Through Reinhart's painstakingly elaborate pop-up settings constructed on six spreads of the tale's most famous scenes, a whimsical and larger-than-life world unfolds, inviting readers into the fantasy realm of three-dimensional glass slippers and fairy godmothers. Elegant ballroom dancers twirl across their laps and nobles' steeds jump from the pages to create a truly mesmerizing and breathtaking experience. As if these weren't wondrous enough, several mini pop-ups open to reveal even more intricately detailed cardboard cutouts that move along with the pages, adding to the book's charm and appeal.

In this beloved fairy tale where good always overcomes evil and true love prevails, Reinhart offers a rich and stunning vision that will captivate and enthrall a whole new generation of readers for years to come.

Matthew Reinhart's masterful work of art will totally amaze you. Each page is beautifully hand crafted to bring all the favorite scenes to life. The six pages have a fabulous full spread pop-up and small mini books with their own splendid pop-ups containing the very detailed story. It's hard to select a favorite page.

A perfect gift giving book for all ages. I highly recommend it!

Wow, as the saying goes,"If at first you don't succeed try, try again!" Most of the sellers I have ordered from I have been satisfied with, but not TOTAL BOOKS! When I ordered this Reinhart book from them their description told me it would be shipped out from a N.Y. state facility and I live in N.Y. state, Uniondale,N.Y. So it shoud take just a few days to be delivered. But I found out later from feedback that they ship out from the United Kingdom overseas! So I emailed them and asked can I expect to get this book the following week or later if shipped from the UK and they told me it could take 10 business or longer due to weather delays(their standard shipping said it takes 3 to 5 business days on their website!) then another week later I got an email telling me the book is sold out! This is after I waited 12 days after they told me it shipped! There are many complaint feedback messages on their site so I won't order from them anymore! That same day I ordered a used Cinderella pop-up from Sleepdepraved and it was shipped out on a tues and got to my house on fri of the same week! But when I opened the book I could see that it had suffered a lot of rough handeling! One of the trees was bent out of shape along with a water well and the castle on the last pages had a bent up wall, folded down trees and 2 wrinkled towers. Also in the dance ballroom the figure of the prince with the 2 stepsisters was laying flat down and a mini pop-up showing the step mother closing the closet door on cinderella would not pop open to reveal she was in there!

But I said," I'll try to fix this!" My experience in making my own jumbo pop-ups years ago came in handy!
