MOMMY - POP-UP.
by Maurice Sendak.
Original Pop-Up Book of the Halloween Kind!
Starred Reviews from Publishers Weekly and Library Journal.
OVERVIEW: Paper engineer Matthew Reinhart provides the structure for Maurice Sendaks first pop-up book—an affectionate, hilarious tribute to Hollywoods classic movie monsters, for Sendak fans of all ages. A toddler opens a heavy wooden door into a mad scientists lab, looking for his mommy, and instead encounters Nosferatu, Frankensteins monster, the Mummy, Wolfman, and more, all of whom leap from the page with wonderful animated movements. When Mommy finally appears, it becomes clear the tyke was right at home all along. Nearly wordless, the story for Sendak fans of all ages is told in the facial expressions and actions of the characters. Theyre all here! Everybodys favorite monsters are just going about their business when a plucky little boy wanders into their cuckoo house. And what does he want? He wants Mommy!
No matter how scary these monsters are, theres no besting a little boy whos looking for his mommy. In one hilarious pop-up extravaganza after another, this kid shows them a thing or two.
