Some ingenious pop-ups as the history of Gutenberg and his printing press are described in verse.

I really loved the movable elements to this pop up book. I think it would be a lot of fun to read to a group of kids at Christmas time around a fire, since both the Christmas theme and the poetic nature of Willard's writing really seem to lend themselves to a cozy winter night. Also, the illustrations by Leister are stunning and I think the warm coloring used throughout really fits the overall vibe of the book. ( )
