This beautiful re-imagining of Charles Dickens's timeless fable, A Christmas Carol: A Pop-Up Book features artist Chuck Fischer's richly painted depictions of the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, brought to life in intricate pop-up scenes by paper engineer Bruce Foster. The entire text of A Christmas Carol is reproduced in five removable, illustrated, keepsake booklets. An introductory booklet provides a biography of Dickens and an illustrated feature on the enduring appeal of this beloved story. The perfect gift, A Christmas Carol, now in pop-up form, will brighten the holidays for young and old.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT
This is such a fantastic book. I can't believe the amount of detail that is in this pop up book. The art really enhances the story. The original story is contained in small booklets pocketed on each fold out. This would be perfect to read out loud, covering one section each night leading up to Christmas. I think this would capture the attention of even the most jaded child or adult. This is the first book by Chuck Fischer that I have ever seen, but it won't be my last.
