Thinly told stories, only average pop-ups, too few pages

I bought this for my 4-year-old son because he loves pop-up books and is very interested in dragons. This book was a disappointment, though. There are only five pop-ups really, to go with five dragon stories, each told in a two-page spread. The stories, drawn from common legends around the world, are retold in a highly compressed summary form that fails to evoke any of their original drama or magic. The popups are also disappointing. First, there are too few: again, just five, one for each story. Worse, only one of these is reasonably sophisticated or impressive; the rest are rather simplistic. Many other contemporary pop-up books display much more creativity in their design and are more compelling in their storytelling.

If you're thinking about getting this for a dragon-lover, skip it. For fans of pop-up books or books with moving parts, take a look at Matthew Reinhardt's books instead, or Zelinsky's award-winning Knick-Knack-Paddywhack. ( )

Five dramatic dragon stories from around the world, including Beowulf and the Firedrake, St. George and the Dragon, and those from ancient China and Japan come to life, literally flying from the pages.
