Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Continuing to innovate, Sabuda enhances the already powerful enchantments of J.M. Barrie's classic 1902 tale with astonishing paper engineering. Illustrations suggest a hybrid of period styles, somewhere between arts and crafts, with their rich patterning, and art nouveau, with their Tiffany glass–like outlines and colorations. At first Sabuda's techniques look familiar if splendid. Pop-up story booklets are tucked to the side of imposing pop-ups that dominate a full spread: enormous clouds (these are shaped like characters) billow over a 3-D London nightscape on the opening spread; to the left, the text begins on narrow pages that unfold to include pop-ups of Nana, Wendy stitching Peter's shadow and more. As the book continues, Sabuda's work becomes more surprising—Captain Hook slides down a hollow tree—until, on a final climactic spread, an entire pirate ship pops up, masts, Jolly Roger and all. Not to be missed. All ages. (Nov.)

By Julie Neal VINE VOICE on November 23, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Oh, the cleverness of this book. It creates a fanciful world of its own. It would be a treasure for anyone to own, young or old. Especially for those who refuse to grow up.

Each of the six page spreads has an amazing pop-up in the center as well as a collection of smaller pages--each with more pop-ups--that tell the story of Peter Pan. Altogether there are 28 pop-ups. It's an awfully big adventure.

The first spread is a tour de force, the nighttime cityscape of London from above. You have to look twice, but the swirling clouds hide mermaids, an Indian princess, Mr. Smee and Captain Hook. The moon shows Peter's young profile. It's stunning, and moving. Imagination and adventure are literally tucked in the clouds.

The book itself is a full two-and-a-half inches thick, and constructed with super-heavy-duty paper. With a bit of care it will last many many years. The full-color artwork is loose and expressive, with bold black outlines and an almost woodcut style. The dreamy mood it evokes fits the story's flights of imagination.

Delightful details are everywhere. On the mermaid page the scales and a mirror are metallic silver. The pop-up of the crocodile who finally eats Captain Hook has a silver hook deep in its throat. The pirate ship unfurls to become longer than the book itself.

Other pop-up gems include:
600 Black Spots: A Pop-up Book for Children of All Ages
Birthday Bugs: A Pop-up Party

Thank you Sara for introducing me to this fantastic artist and engineer.

He is astonishing and I am so glad, at 66, to meet someone who indulges all my grown up childishness. This book is a marvel and a wonder. It is astonishingly beautiful to open a page and look down into the depths of a London that is alive and swirling with mystery. The clouds slowly reveal themselves as fragments of all the central characters in the book, almost as if they were actively hiding and exposing themselves in life. The engineering is exquisite to mushroom the mystery as the pages slowly are drawn apart, like a curtain opening to reveal the hidden backdrop of all the action; but this IS the action and it sucks you swirling down into the play.

Each pop-up is worth hours of exploration, and then of course you can read the words and return to the three dimensional art to see what you may have gleaned and what has been added. There is so much to stir your imagination and bring the words alive. The art is alive and rustling and stirring. It creaks and twitters and sways to unseen breezes and magical puffs. Then, oh so clevelry, it becomes its own backdrop to miniature books within the book, each mini-pop-up art evoking new contexts from the main and adding layers of meaning to the whole. This is a man made universe to jump into like a rabbit hole. These are not simple entertaining distractions to a story; they embody the story with a faith and clarity that only the most vivid imagination could create; and then they stimulate that imagination to riot.

After collecting 16 of Sabuda's and Reinhart's pop-up books it is fun to compare them in both the illustration styles and the pop-up engineering! Each pop-up 2 page spread is a treat to examine and I ask myself "How did they do that?"The 2 page mermaid spread with Peter and 3 pretty mermaids reclining on a rock, with each mermaid in a playful pose is an example of the "How'd they do that?!" reaction! The pop-up movement of the characters with peter's feet crossing and the mermaid's bodies bobbing up and down on the rock when spreading and closing the pages slightly is both charming and magical!! I also like the attention to detail like the shiny silver scales on the fishtails! And the books have interesting views of the settings of the stories, like the aerial view of London with the pop-up clouds resembling, Captain Hook, the mermaids, Mr Smee and Tiger lily with Peter Pan flying near the moon with a silowette of Peter on it!

And the mini pop-ups can be as intriguing as the large ones! Open a mini page one and the Darling children rise up in a totem pole pattern with Pan at the top as they start to fly! The Sabuda illustrations here remind me of the inspirational sketch art made by the illustraters for the preparation art from the making of Walt Disney's PETER PAN in the 1950s. At first I thought there might be something wrong with the pirate ship at the end of the book because the top deck did not lie down but stuck upward at an angle, but I realised that it's supposed to work like that! So I alway's press down on the front edge of the deck to make it line up with the front of the ship! My favorite pop-up boats in Sabuda's and Reinhart's books are the Argonaut's ship in GODS AND HEROES and the ship attacked by a Kraken in DRAGONS AND MONSTERS! These books are incredible!

A wonderful, exciting book for both young and old. I have many many Rober Sabuda's pop up. Each gives great pleasure. Have gifted many Robert Sabuda's Christmas pop up to friends. My granddaughter gets each book for the collection I started for her. Mr Sabuda is a genius. kz
