David A. Carter has created an extremely imaginative pop-up dedicated to love. The book has seven spreads, each with a verse and a pop-up of different geometrical and abstract forms. Scattered among the pop-ups are hearts, some tiny and some large. There are hearts dangling from strings, hearts hidden in a forest, and hearts captured by the colors of the rainbow. Readers will be amazed by the final pop-up—an explosion of red foil hearts! The cover, too, sports red foil.

This tribute to love is sure to please sweethearts, young and old, throughout the years.

Praise For I Love You: A Pop-Up Book

"Love bursts up in paper waves and swirls from every spread of this small, heartfelt keepsake. In a spectacular 3-D valentine, Carter gives visual expression to an array of loving sentiments . . . The Picasso of paper engineering does it again."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Carter pairs abstracted and at times almost architectural pop-ups with a love poem stocked with metaphors."

— Publishers Weekly
