This is a pop-up book that is super fun. Lots of things going on, on each of the pages. The book is written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak in collaboration with the master of pop up books, Matthew Reinhart. While I'll be honest, it you are looking for a good book to read, you might look elsewhere. But, no matter, because this book is highly entertaining. You will want to inspect each page, because the engineering of this pop up is amazing, as well as the illustrations! This is a perfect book to introduce when you are wanting to dive into a pop up art lesson, no matter the season. It will open a whole world of oppurtunities to their imagination.
