Charles Dickens’ classic holiday story A Christmas Carol has come to life in the most incredible way in Chuck Fischer’s A Christmas Carol: A Pop-Up Book.
The transformation of this classic tale is spectacular, and page after page Fischer continue to impress with his stunning paintings, which have been made completely unforgettable by Bruce Foster’s paper engineered pop-up pages. Together Fischer and Foster have created a masterpiece.
My kids absolutely love looking at the pop-up art and the beautiful paintings on the pages, and it seems that every time they sit down with it, they discover new treasures on the pages.
The details are impeccable, just look at this little detail on the A Christmas Carol booklets.
A Christmas Carol: A Pop-Up Book is going to have a very special spot on my personal book shelf, as this is one book I treasure too much to have the incredible pop-up masterpieces destroyed by unsupervised curious boys. It will be a book that we read and study together, and it will be treasured with care and respect.
