Following the publication of Rescue: Pop-Up Emergency Vehicles and Puppies, Kittens, and Other Pop-Up Pets, Matthew Reinhart turns his pop-up wizardry on two new subjects, dinosaurs and princesses. This young and very affordable pop-up series is perfect for these economic times.
A Princess Like Me features bright cut-paper collage artwork, just right for the young set. The book takes a young princess through her day—from waking up in her big pillowy bed, to dressing up in pretty dresses (not to mention her special tiaras), playing with her pet unicorn, and getting ready for a tea party with her other princess friends. All is brought to life with pop-ups, pull-tabs, lift-the-flaps, and more. The inside front and back covers will feature a bookplate and a coloring activity for added value.
