A Christmas Carol Pop-Up Book


A Christmas Carol: A Pop-Up Book by Chuck Fischer (and of course Charles Dickens) is gorgeous! I was so so happy to be able to review this book and am equally excited to be able to read this book to the kids around the holidays! Callan will love it. It is interactive. He can sit and look at all the pop-ups and the amazing pictures as I read from each page's pamphlet. We all know the story of A Christmas Carol, and this book brings the story alive. I do not want to share it with my kids, it so beautifully put together, but of course, I will. It is too exquisite not to share! I highly recommend this as a gift, or get one just to keep for yourself to cherish over the years! Amazing book!

About the book: This beautiful re-imagining of Charles Dickens's timeless fable, A Christmas Carol: A Pop-Up Book features artist Chuck Fischer's richly painted depictions of the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, brought to life in intricate pop-up scenes by paper engineer Bruce Foster. The entire text of A Christmas Carol is reproduced in five removable, illustrated, keepsake booklets. An introductory booklet provides a biography of Dickens and an illustrated feature on the enduring appeal of this beloved story. The perfect gift, A Christmas Carol, now in pop-up form, will brighten the holidays for young and old.

About the Author: Chuck Fischer is a leading author and designer who has taken his unique painting style and effortlessly transferred his signature look to various home furnishings products and books, making his remarkable artistry available to a wide audience.
