The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires (Author and Illustrator)
Award-winning author and illustrator Ashley Spires has created a charming picture book about an unnamed girl and her very best friend, who happens to be a dog. The girl has a wonderful idea. «She is going to make the most MAGNIFICENT thing! She knows just how it will look. She knows just how it will work. All she has to do is make it, and she makes things all the time. Easy-peasy!» But making her magnificent thing is anything but easy, and the girl tries and fails, repeatedly. Eventually, the girl gets really, really mad. She is so mad, in fact, that she quits. But after her dog convinces her to take a walk, she comes back to her project with renewed enthusiasm and manages to get it just right.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is Robert Sabuda’s most amazing creation ever, featuring stunning pop-ups illustrated in John Tenniel’s classic style. The text is faithful to Lewis Carroll’s original story, and special effects like a Victorian peep show, multifaceted foil, and tactile elements make this a pop-up to read and admire again and again. Pop-up guru Robert Sabuda performs his paper engineering magic again with this stunning adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale. With large and small textured pop-ups — some of the animals are actually furry — that will not leave you indifferent. Each spread includes several smaller pop-ups in «subpages,» along with larger pop-ups taking center stage, but of the most amazing must-see in this book is the final spread of Alice and a flurrying pack of cards (all 52 cards are there) that is sure to put you over the blissful edge.
