I made this video to show how wonderful the book is. The short video on this page doesn't do the book justice. So you get a page by page view, though I don't read the whole story or give away the plot for anyone who hasn't seen the musical. I hope you enjoy and end up buying this book! It's great for any collection.

As an adult who loves WICKED, this book was a pleasant surprise. I ordered it not knowing how complex it is. It is so much fun. The scene where Elphaba learns to fly and when she makes the monkeys fly are particularly exciting in the book!! A must have for every WICKED fan.

So I was told to get something fun with the money I got for my birthday. I was told if it wasn't something fun I got, she'd give me more money until I did get something fun or she went broke. So I got this. I LOVE Wicked. Seen it seven times and it made me go into musical theater like I have. This book is great. I had a lot of friends who'd never had the chance to see it and so I let them borrow this book. PERFECT way to make them go see it later. The pop ups are actually few only three actually 'pop up' but they are all the more cool for that. They have a lot of flaps that show hidden things. There is an edition of the Shiz newsletter in it, a beautiful descending Glinda bubble, amazing Defying Gravity pop up and one of the flying monkey's that will take your breath away. There are hidden fun things for the super fans too. The letters Elphaba and Galinda sent home to their parents after becoming roommate is in there, a few spells from the Grimminarie as well. It's a fun little book and the work on it might just take your breath away. Truly amazing artist work.

This book is a "must have" for any fan of the musical "Wicked". The pop-ups open and close with ease unlike some other pop-up books I have purchased. The abbreviated stories throughout tell just enough of the story to let the reader know what is going on although anyone who has seen the show/read the book will know the story and thoroughly love this beautiful remembrance of this brilliant show. My friends and family who will be receiving this book as a gift are all adults and I am positive that they will be completely thrillified to receive it.

I bought this on a lark when purchasing other "Wicked" related items, and this is clearly a gem. Charming and well executed, this book is great for the young and old, and will grace our coffee table for years to come. I originally purchased this as a gift, but I like it so much I'm going to have to buy more for all the Elphabas and Galindas on my Christmas list.

With books quickly becoming a long-lost art, it's cause for celebration when one comes around that really jumps out at you -- or in this case, pops up at you. When was the last time you got excited about a pop-up book?! And who says pop-up books are just for little kids anyway?! This is a great book for anyone (of any age) who loves all things Wicked and knows that books can be much more than just printed text. I love the use of not only elaborate pop-ups, but also windows to open, letters to take out and read, and new discoveries on every page. It's charm is reminiscent of the Griffin & Sabine books of the 1990s. I'm looking forward to sharing this delightful book with my fellow Wicked loving friends. It's going to be a huge hit!

Got this for my daughters wicked themed birthday party. I know not many 6 year olds request a musical themed party but she is excited about seeing it for the first time & loves the soundtrack. She is loving reading it before going to the play. I think it will help her understand the play more & save me from answering constant questions during the play.

This book has only about a dozen "pages" of pop-up's from the musical "Wicked". That being said, each one is richly detailed and full of information. Also, it seems very durable for a pop-up. Sadly, this book is out-of-print and getting harder and harder to find.
