From School Library Journal
Gr 3-6–Wickings presents an entire crafts workshop between two covers. The 3-D album opens with small diagrams of some common pop-up crease patterns and noise-making tricks, featuring a pop-up robot on the next spread as a sample, and goes on to include blank, slotted layouts for four pop-up scenes flanked by foldout sheets of perforated, pre-glued card stock parts to punch out, fold, and attach. Though this is no substitute for Joan Irvine's many books or David A. Carter and James Diaz's magisterial Elements of Pop-Up (Little Simon, 1999), it would make a welcome gift item for budding paper engineers.–John Peters, formerly at New York Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2010.

Each interactive make-your-own pop-up scene has a tear off instruction sheet that includes a Mini Master Class on each pop-up technique: Even Tent, Parallel Box, Rubber Band, Noise Maker, Triangle on a Tent, Spiral and more. If you put the pop-up pages together in order, the techniques get a little more advanced so, by the time you have put together all the pages, you have a pretty good working knowledge of how pop-ups are engineered PLUS some pretty nifty instructions to keep in the form of Mini Master Class "brochures".
I could not put this book down until I had finished all the pop-ups. And even though the pages are "finished", the book just keeps delighting me every time I open it. Kudos to the designer, the illustrator AND the printer/publisher: Well done!
The only thing I am puzzled about is the age suggestion: 3 to 8 years. Really? It should be 3 to 101. If you are looking for the ultimate pop-up book - whether a how-to or fun pop-up book - I HIGHLY recommend Pop-Up: Everything You Need to Create Your Own Pop-Up Book.
So. Much. Fun. (Oh, yeah, and I'm a 50+ year old).
I would eagerly buy any other book that follows this format but alas, I haven't found one this nice. The fact that this book is ready to go and just needs to be punched out and put together with the provided adhesive strips made this a fun and satisfying book. The illustrations are fun, the instructions are clear and detailed.
