The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
Robert Clarke Sabuda
0689817517
Oct 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the publication of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz, master paper engineer Robert Sabuda has created a pop-up version of Dorothy's adventures in Oz that fans will find hard to resist. Modeling his depictions of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the rest after W. W. Denslow's original art, Sabuda adds a third dimension that would have rocked Denslow's--and Baum's--world. A rapidly spinning cyclone actually casts a breeze over the startled reader's face. Glorious red poppies wave seductively in a field. And the Emerald City positively glitters with green, especially when young readers try on the special tinted "Spectacles for You" provided in a pocket on the page. The abridged text, provided in minibooklets set onto each page, covers enough basics for the Oz novice,...

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Robert Clarke Sabuda
0689847432
Oct 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 6-Sabuda brings Alice's world to life with breathtaking, three-dimensional images that are incredibly imaginative, intricately detailed, and perfectly executed. Carroll's text has been significantly abridged, and although some scenes are a bit choppy, the quickly paced narrative retains the flavor of the original. Sabuda's illustrations pay homage to John Tenniel's artwork, while providing a fresh look at the story and offering details that add greatly to the reading experience. The events unfold in six glorious spreads, each featuring a large pop-up and a narrow booklet that opens into several pages containing the text as well as additional pop-ups. The first scene depicts Alice and her sister on the riverbank, and the faces of several Wonderland characters are camouflaged among the...


America the Beautiful
Robert Clarke Sabuda
0689847440
Oct 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Every Robert Sabuda pop-up is a marvel, but America the Beautiful is singularly remarkable for its inspired interpretation of the classic American anthem. Each page presents a magnificent pop-up featuring a line from the first (and best known) verse of "America the Beautiful." Sabuda has included the song in its entirety, featuring mini pop-ups, in a small booklet on the final page. Beginning with the Golden Gate Bridge, and ending with a spectacularly regal Statue of Liberty, Sabuda's America the Beautiful is a lovely keepsake that also serves as a patriotic primer for teaching young ones about America. --Daphne Durham

From Booklist
This copiously illustrated encyclopedia chronicles more than 1,000 DC Comics characters from the 1930s to the present.

20th Century Factory Glass
Lesley Jackson

June 3, 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Sure, glass has been around since ancient Mesopotamia, but some say the real art of glass wasn't developed until relatively recently. In 250 pages filled with photographs and information, 20th Century Factory Glass examines the myriad ways that a few minerals can combine with high heat to create delicate and colorful objects of beauty. In an effort to simplify material, the sections are arranged not by time period, but alphabetically by artist or company. From Fenton to Whitefriars, Anchor Hocking to Orrefors, author Lesley Jackson has collected information on nearly 100 manufacturers, and the text includes facts about the financial history of the company, as well as its artistic inspirations. There are many books devoted to Tiffany stained glass, but how many of them discuss his Aquamarine glass, or the business backing...
