Of course! Of course! Why hasn’t it been done before?! The story of Noah’s ark presented in a pop-up book?! It makes beautiful sense… and who better to give it the elegant razzle-dazzle than the talented Francesca Crespi?! The pop-up master who’s stayed quietly out of the picture book world since her last title in 2008.
We missed you Francesca! I mean, we did have the wonderful Robert Sabuda to keep us busy with his recent releases of pop-up fairy tales. (A special shout out for his stunning adaptation of The Little Mermaid where he artfully and tastefully deals with mermaid nudity and provides intricate pages within the pages. You’ve got to see his very cool mermaid-fin to leg transformation!!!) But Francesca dear… you hold a special place of honor in the world of paper crafting authors…
I have yet to see the actual pages, but already the book has leaped to the top of my “luxury item that I don’t need but would love to have” wish list.
Can’t wait to see it!!!
