Pop up

By Sam McBartney; Illustrated by Anita Jerem

Release Date: September 13, 2011

It’s hard to believe that pop-up was not the original intention of the creators, so sliding parts fit seamlessly into the plot line of this modern classic.

In contrast to the pop-up version of the 1998 story, the characters here move around every page, and with exceptionally graceful naturalism. Pulling a large walnut rabbit’s ears at the doorway to make sure he’s listening to a drowsy turn of his head to get one last goodnight kiss in a multi-level table at the end More of Big NotBrown for his cargo challenges. As readers turn a lapel to read Big Nutbrown’s “But I Love You So Much”, his arms are outstretched to illustrate. The emotional connection between the two rabbits is clearer than ever in Jerem’s serene and restrained outdoor scenes, which are slightly larger than those in the trade edition, and the ending scene becomes even more intimate by hiding the ending line (“I love you right.” Up to the moon – and back “) to That opens an inconspicuous flap.

The book is available in almost every format – but it’s the perfect one.
