Over the years we purchased 8 other large popup books for our children, including three other Dr Seuss pop-up books, the Lorax was the worse off all.
What is wrong with this book:
The paper quality, it's lighter than it should be for this kind of book. The book should print in a heavy card stock, but paper is much lighter. At certain pages the pop-up show weird creasing and marks from the paper folded underneath.
Print quality: Color varies on the same page. For example if there are multiple things as part of one scene or even if the same image is broken up as part of "the same popup", the color shading from each of the multiple pieces varies. There is also slight spotting on the solid colors.
Excessive glue: There are visible globs of glue trough out the book, on some pages there are smudges of glue on the pages that looks like they tried cleaning them up.
Not all popups in the same page open up: There are some pages that incorporate various popups as you open the page. Not all of them open, so you have to open them up individually, and the popups that are supposed to be manually operated, are NOT smooth to open.
Rips and re-glue: One of the pages had a small rip and appears to have been carefully glued to hide the tear.
Wrong placement for popup: Some of the popups appear to be out of line. For example towards the end, the Lorax flies trough the clouds riding this flash/shooting star shape. When you close the page and the star retracts, it pushes right up against the spine bending all of the points in the star. As you read the book and open and close pages, you constantly have to manually readjust the popups before you can close the page.
We decided to keep the book because this was the replacement we received after our first copy had worse quality issues. The only good thing about the book is the story and that’s why I rate it two stars, but the quality issues are unacceptable and I do not recommend unless you can see the book at your local store before you buy it.
We bought the book through Amazon with prime shipping.
While the book is awesome, the popups are quite intricate, so we're sure our kid will tear it instead of enjoying it. We shelved it for now and will wait until he's a bit older, but nothing wrong with the book. =)
