This is a beautiful work of art! There is a giant pop-up on each page, plus smaller pouches, pockets and tiny pop-ups along with information on how scenes were brought to life in the movies. I love this and all paperwork by Bruce Foster...the man's a genius! This book is a treasured keepsake for any age.

For Harry Potter Fans Young and Old Nov. 21 2010
By stotch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Both ruggedly built and finely crafted, this book is a delightful blend of exceptionally detailed art and in-depth, behind-the-scenes information that both children and adults can enjoy equally. When I first opened the book, I was enthralled with the breathtaking art. The pages are lush and realistic; flipping through them is like flying through the world of Harry Potter on your Firebolt.

As if the fantastic artwork were not enough to make me buy this book, the unbelievable amount of source information on the filming of the Harry Potter franchise puts this book in a rank of its own. I have seen other well-made pop-up books about famous films, but I have never before seen one that explains about how the film was made and how the scenes were conceived. This book goes so far as to tell you the real-life name of Hedwig and the fact that the owl had "stand-ins." Because of this level of detailed information, reading it is a very satisfying learning experience. And if you are thinking that this information targets a more mature audience, think again. This book's descriptions of behind-the-scenes facts are written in a manner that most reading levels can easily grasp.

Adding together the brilliant artwork and informative content of this book, I would highly recommend its purchase to any Harry Potter fan.

Must Have book for all Harry Potter Fans Nov. 16 2010
By Tom Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I took an early lunch break and headed to Barnes and Noble to get my copy of the Pop Up book. I was glad to have gone early, because I wasn't alone and when I left the store, there were only a few copies left.

The book has five pop ups, which are of Diagon Alley, Hogwarts, Magical Creatures, Magical Games and sports and the Dark Arts and they're accompanied by little side pop ups and interactive features. I'm amazed at how much stuff they put into the book. I feel like every time I open it, there is something I hadn't seen before.

I think all the pop ups are great, but where are Ron and Hermione? They are nowhere in this book. I would have liked to see them in at least one pop up. Even though there is no supporting cast, I still think this book is a must have for all Potter fans.

Beautiful, but has some pop-up issues July 29 2012
By webinvader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First off, the images are beautiful, detailed, and accurate to the movie series. I've enjoyed looking at the images and reading the information on each page.

That said, I did find some issue with the pop-up construction. These are large pop-ups and I assume the construction is complex, but I didn't expect to have continuous issues with pop-ups sticking half-open and having to finagle with them to get them to straighten up. Also I don't know if it's just a flawed book I have, but the dragon head is positioned so it looks like it is staring at the floor with her chin/jaw planted on her chest. It looks awkward and wrong, bothering me every time i look at that page.

I had purchased two because it was such a great deal at the time ($9 ea.) and am still intending to give the second as a gift. I know that even if the pop-ups are sticky my friend (a true HP fan) will still love it.

Fascinating Insights Dec 30 2010
By Marcia N. Blatt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The pop-ups, designed by Bruce Foster, are complex and well-designed, with a nice interactive aspect: numbers on the pop-up can be matched to a list on the spread (ie: Find Dumbledor's Office.) There are fascinating insights throughout the book regarding aspects of the filming of the Harry Potter movies, sort of a behind-the-scenes tour. And, the art cannot be more authentic - it is by Andrew Williamson who was Concept Artist for the whole series of films.

I spent over an hour with grandchildren, ages five and ten, pouring over the book, spread by spread, taking turns reading the narratives, and matching features of the pop-ups to the numbered lists on several spreads. We were all especially delighted with the pop-up of Hogwarts School of Witchccraft and Wizardry, especially when we read that "J.K. Rowling described her vision of Hogwarts as 'a huge, rambling, quite scary-looking castle with a jumble of towers and battlements.'" That's exactly the way it looks," said the ten-year-old. In our case, the book was a pleasure for ages five to eighty-three.

For Pop-up and Harry Potter Lovers. Dec 21 2010
By George F. Fry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a really fun book and is as detailed as the Harry Potter films themselves. Pop-ups are extremely hard to do (their alternate name is 'paper engineering which gives some idea of the difficulties) and these are particularly involved with many smaller pop-ups in the make-up of the larger and more complex double page spreads.
Where the book sometimes misses is that it uses photos from the films and in some cases these, when cut out and reduced, are occasionally blurry in detail and thus ineffective.However the major spreads such as Hogwarts and the Forbidden Forest with Hagred's hut are very fine. If you are a Potter fan you will love this.
