Most of you, if not all, know the story A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. It's a timeless Christmas classic for people of all ages. Chuck Fischer has taken the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future and brought them to life through his beautiful pop up book. The story is in five little booklets within the pop up book. You can read the story while enjoying the moving and detailed works of the pages of the pop up book.
This book would make a wonderful Christmas gift for the literature/book lover on your list. I know I've mentioned it before, but I have always loved children's literature. Not only is this story a great one, but the artwork is a wonder in and of itself. I was shocked at how amazing the art is. Fischer took great care when he created this book.
While it's a great book to look at and enjoy, I am very cautious with these with young children. The details are so small and I'm afraid my rambunctious son would ruin it and not ever be able to enjoy it after that. So this amazing book will go on a high bookshelf, so that I can supervise readings. But I can't wait to pull it out every holiday season to share with my family.
Buy It: A Christmas Carol Pop Up Book by Chuck Fischer is available from book retailers everywhere.
