Pop-Up London
(by Jennie Maizels/ paper engineering by Richard Fe, Candlewick $19.99 Score:)

Just in time for the Olympics, here's a way to share more details about this great city. Most text is hidden under the flaps, but the wonder here is having some of London's landmarks, including London Bridge pop-up off of the page in 3D.

2011 Award
Dragons & Monsters
(by Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda, Candlewick $29.99 Score:)

The masters of the pop-up book, deliver yet another spectacular title that features all things dragons and monsters throughout history.  Once you get passed the wow factor, you'll see that this is really a first look at mythology as well as Eastern and Western folk lore.  It's just this type of book that can get a reluctant reader engaged! Marked 5 & up, but the subject matter is really more for older school aged kids.

2008 Awards
Robert Crowther Pop-Up House of Inventions
(by Robert Crowther, Candlewick $17.99 Score:)

Kids often don't even think about the fact that there have not always been zippers, email, mirrors or soap. In a clever pop-up format, Crowther creates six typical rooms of a house and labels the many typical items in each room with thumbnail bits of information about inventions. This update is not radically different from the original. It's still a fun book for sparking an interest in history and how things were. 6 & up.
