Description
A life lesson that all parents want their children to learn: It s OK to make a mistake. In fact, hooray for mistakes A mistake is an adventure in creativity, a portal of discovery. A spill doesn t ruin a drawing not when it becomes the shape of a goofy animal. And an accidental tear in your paper? Don t be upset about it when you can turn it into the roaring mouth of an alligator.

A singular work of imagination, creativity, and paper engineering, "Beautiful Oops " is filled with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, tears, holes, overlays, bends, smudges, and even an accordion telescope each demonstrating the magical transformation from blunder to wonder.
