Lost in Wonderland

This is quite possibly the most exciting gift I have ever received, by proxy that is. Thanks to Iris’ most wonderful and almost psychic godmother, we now have one of the most beautiful books ever in our library. I was at least ten times more excited than Iris when she was presented the book.

Robert Sabuda is THE leading children’s pop-up book artist and paper engineer. Seriously, is there a more awesome job than doing cut and paste for a living?! Among his repertoire of absolutely, jaw-dropping gorgeous creations, Alice in Wonderland is one of his best. This is one post where words are basically useless and I have gone crazy with my phone camera. I still have the most ridiculous grin whenever I see it.

Disclaimer: DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, LET ANYONE WHO WOULD CAUSE THIS BOOK ANY HARM TOUCH IT BECAUSE IF ANY OF THIS BREAKS YOU WILL CRY. Or at least I will.

  1. I love my Mega-beasts edition, which I slot in back into its original plastic wrap after I take it out to show kids that come by. Didn’t realise he did story books. And his patterns and colours are something else! My kid’s gonna have to wait 3 more years at least before I feel safe showing it to her…she’s in her terrible 2’s stage and loooooves to tear paper.

    • Yes, he does! My next acquisition will be The Little Mermaid. There’s a whole proper ship that pops up! Yes, I have lots of those kinds of books that are “for the child” but actually really for me. HAHAHAHA…
