This is so much more than a story book. It's a glorious pop up book to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the original publication and I can think of no better way to celebrate.
It's a shorter version of the original book by L.Frank Baum but it takes nothing away from the story we all know and love. The artwork is out of this world with foil adding to the visual splendour. It's truly magical. It brings the tale of Dorothy, the lion, the tin man and the scarecrow to life in such an enchanting way.
My favourite page is that of the Emerald City, particularly looking through the Emerald City Eyeglasses.
This is a book that will be a favourite with young and old and will entertain generations of children. Children will delight in turning the text pages to find hidden pop up illustrations.
