March 1st-7th Weekly Half-Off Book Special

In movie theaters this week is the film Alice in Wonderland. Our book special this week is an amazing visual retelling of the classic Lewis Carroll tale:

Alice in (Pop-Up) Wonderland
Based on the novel by Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by J. Otto Seibold, Paper engineering by James R. Diaz
(Hardcover no dustjacket, 12 pages, 2003, $20.00)

Alice in (Pop-Up) Wonderland

J. Otto Seibold‘s ‘super dimensional’ Alice, which he both designed and illustrated, plunges children into a psychedelic universe,” writes Booklist‘s Jennifer Mattson.

“The pops conceived by Seibold and paper engineer James R. Diaz are a lot of fun. Each spread contains a dizzying array of devices and effects, including a particularly clever rendering of the vanishing Cheshire cat.” (Hardcover, 12 pages, with full-color pop-up illustrations, in shrink-wrap.)

Watch the trailer for Alice in Wonderland, directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter below:

“If you are looking to have a crazy Alice experience and be surprised and excited with every turn of the page,” writes Julia Rothman on the Book By Its Cover blog, “then pick up a copy.”

“This just might be the coolest pop-up book ever!” writes children’s fashion blogger Sweet Pepita. “This book is technically astounding and, of course, the illustrations are awesome.” View great photos of the book on a Japanese blog that covers children’s pop-ups. Scholastic has also made a cool flash animation based on the book.
