This is such a fantastic book. I can't believe the amount of detail that is in this pop up book. The art really enhances the story. The original story is contained in small booklets pocketed on each fold out. This would be perfect to read out loud, covering one section each night leading up to Christmas. I think this would capture the attention of even the most jaded child or adult. This is the first book by Chuck Fischer that I have ever seen, but it won't be my last.
