Robert Sabuda is a master at paper magic, and this book is a masterpiece. If you enjoyed his small "help the animals" books, and marveled at the glorious white paper art in the 12 Days of Christmas, wait until the Emerald City rises before your very eyes! Once again, Sabuda has earned his reputation as the world's foremost paper engineer, artist and magician.

Robert Sabuda is one of my favorite illustrators and certainly the most renowned pop-up book artist and paper engineer working today. Combine Sabuda's entrancing three dimensional illustrations with Frank Baum's glorious story about Dorothy, the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, Toto and their amazing adventures in the Land of Oz and you have pure magic!
The pop-up illustrations are quite intricate, with artwork that's faithful to W. W. Denslow's original illustrations. Sabuda works in a fresh, new style here using prints made from cut linoleum blocks. He brings the drawings to life in a way that will enchant children and adults alike. Each page contains a large pop-up and a small booklet which tells part of the story. And each mini-book contains small pop-ups too. There's a cyclone that really twists, a wizard's balloon that sails into the sky, holographic foil creates a true, sparkling Emerald City made even greener with the included green glasses for the reader
The text is slightly abridged so I would suggest that true "Wizard of Oz" fans include an unabridged copy in their library. I recently bought a copy for my cousin's little girl. She calls it her "magic book" and can't seem to put it down. This very special edition, published to commemorate the book's 100th Anniversary, is well worth the price and will surely find a place of honor on your bookshelf. It is spectacular!

This is impressive! Something really great for Wizard of Oz enthusiasts to keep for years. Don't buy it intending it for small children to handle independently, though. The amazing detail is somewhat fragile. But don't be afraid to get it and hang onto it until they're old enough to be careful with it. It's really incredible!

Sabuda is a genius. There are popups inside of popups in this book. Each page has a large popup tableau, then on the sides are more popups in sub-books that contain the text. I would recommend this book to kids ages 5 and up. And I do mean 'And Up', since as an adult this book still blows me away.
One thing that boggles my mind is how Sabuda's books are created. I'd like to tour the 'factory' or whatever. Because for the amount of time it took to create each copy of the book the cost is TRIVIAL.
