    This was truly magnificent. Sabudas pop-up art is outstanding. My favorite are the Emerald City and the balloon scene. Simply perfection. Overall, I was surprised by how much I actually enjoyed the story itself. I have read an abridged version of The Wizard of Oz in fifth grade but forgot everything and wow, this has the potential to unfold into an amazing adventure. I actually own the full version, so I'm excited to read it next month and give my full thoughts on the plot line. So far all I can This was truly magnificent. Sabudas pop-up art is outstanding.

    We’ve had this book for a while, but only now have I sat down with the kid to actually read through all of it, instead of just grabbing snatches of story until everyone gets too distracted fiddling with the popups. The adaptation is okay, though nothing to write home about, but the popups are absolutely SPECTACULAR. I’ve had a few pop-up books as a kid, some rather elaborate for their time, but nothing compares to this intricate work of art.

I’ve had a few pop-up books as a kid, some rather elaborate for their time, but nothing compares to this intricate work of art. Every page is crafted in detail, with many sub-pages and smaller popups as you dig through the story. The only real issue with the book is that it is perhaps a bit too elaborate for its own good and thus too delicate, so it is hard to let children poke through it unsupervised, risking easy damage from tiny, curious, but not quite coordinated fingers.

    After my first encounter with Sabuda's work I must admit that the book's three-dimensional illustrations are very eye-popping and well-crafted. All the standup mini works of art allow the reader to interact with the book. Such a version of one of the most known stories for children brings all the fabulous events to life and makes an illusion that the reader is a part of the story. I would recommend this book to everyone, not only children, because it is a masterpiece of children picture books.

    This pop-up version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is stunning. The story may be a little brief (being as it is abridged), but the brevity is more than made up for by the incredible and vibrant artwork created by Sabuda.

    I want to classify this book for different grade levels for different reasons. I would say it is acceptable for K-2 because of the pop-ups and the vibrant color. If the story was to be read, a teacher or parent might read to the child or read a long with them, a little bit at a time. I would classify this in an older category because of the passages. Older children love pop-up books too! The book was very interactive. Some of the pop-ups you could play with (the green balloon can be spun).

There is a mixture of dull and bright colors, but they are all complimentary to each other. I also enjoyed that there is a pop-up on every page. On some pages, there are additional pop-ups (for example: the page with Emerald City has additional pop-ups in a booklet at the bottom that tells the story. There are also spectacles that you can put on and look at the city with!). If I enjoyed this book, I am sure someone younger than I will enjoy it!

    My parents sent this book over for my daughter, and it is easily the most amazing, thoughtfully designed pop up book I have ever seen. The story is the story you know, but the construction and attention to detail is fantastic. I'm only sad that my daughter is a little too young to read the book herself, since she'd probably destroy it. It's fragile, and she's not even two years old yet. I guarantee she will love this book when she is old enough to appreciate it, and I would recommend it to anyon My parents sent this book over for my daughter, and it is easily the most amazing, thoughtfully designed pop up book I have ever seen.

    I am in love with the movie The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and (I read this book awhile ago) when I heard there was a book I was like "I NEED TO READ THIS!" The book was a little different from the movie but still good. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is definatley a classic and I HIGHLY encourage EVERYONE I know to add this book to your good reads and watch the movie too.

    I thought I new the story of Oz until I studied the book in college. (Thank you Anne and Phil!) Not only did I discover how incredibely rich the story truly was, I was amazed to find out how much of his own beliefs and world Baum put into this classic. It is definitely worth reading over and over again.

    I got a used copy of this scarce, expensive pop-up book for under $6 online, and I would have been satisfied as long as most of the pages still worked. However, my copy is in near-perfect condition, and I have been so excited to explore it. The delicate, elaborate paper art is extraordinary, and even though I love the Narnia book by the same artist that I purchased years ago, this one is even more impressive, with an adaptation of the story and additional, smaller pages that a reader can turn to I got a used copy of this scarce, expensive pop-up book for under $6 online, and I would have been satisfied as long as most of the pages still worked.

This book is absolutely gorgeous, and is amazing art. It's also designed such that the pages close again fairly easily, without a major risk of things catching or tearing. It's certainly a fragile book, and I wouldn't want to let a child read it without supervision, but it's an excellently designed and engineered pop-up book. Also, Dorothy's shoes are silver! I appreciated the connections with the book, not just classic images from the movie.

    Absolutely amazing pop up book. If you can get your hands on a copy, don't hesitate. The detail in the illustrations and the details in the pop up mechanics are unbelievable - pretty much the best pop up book I have seen. This version of 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz', although shorter than the original Baum work, follows closely to its details and gives you a sense of its authenticity. For example Dorothy's shoes are silver and not red in this edition. The prose is of it's time but adds to the cha Absolutely amazing pop up book. If you can get your hands on a copy, don't hesitate.

And for each main page, there are smaller books sections within that open up to even more paper engineering magic. Sabuda’s inventive approach is so refreshing and inspiring.

    I've always loved the Oz books and the film, but this Commemorative Pop-up book is stunning. The intricate pop-up features are crafted beautifully and I can't wait to sit by my grandsons and experience it with them. (Not sure how the pop-up figures and the little books-within-a-book will withstand little hands, though.) I've always loved the Oz books and the film, but this Commemorative Pop-up book is stunning.

    OH. MY. GOODNESS! I've always loved pop up books, but this one is beyond belief! The tornado!!! The hot air balloon!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A delightful book my husband found at the local Goodwill-As-Is. This volume is too delicate for small children, but should be appreciated by older children and adults. It's a short version of L. Frank Baum's book. The pop-ups are intricate and need to be handled gently. The illustrations are very much In the style of the originals. This book is a treasure!

    E has been really into the Wizard of Oz lately, my husband showed her the anime version from the 80s and she loved it. So we got out the pop-up book and she has wanted me to read it several nights in a row now. I read her the actual book when she was a little baby, it used to lull her to sleep, but maybe she'll be old enough to enjoy it in a year or two.

    Robert Sabuda is an ‘artist and paper engineer’ who created this absolutely stunning pop-up book of The Wizard Of Oz to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the book. This is an incredibly absorbing piece of art using text from the original book and all kinds of surprises including spinning cyclones and gigantic hot air balloons.

    I stumbled across a copy of this in a used bookstore, and was amazed by the pop up art. The detail is spectacular and the number of interactive parts gives it extra entertainment value. The excerpts pair well with the illustrations, and were well chosen to summarize the book. I'll be looking for more of Sabuda's pop ups after this.
