Fantastic pop up book. Whole story. Great to tuck away in cupboard and bring out for special readings.
"Delineated with a delicate touch, the paper engineering adds a new dimension to this wistful fairy tale without overpowering it, enhancing the story's subtleties and echoing its sense of wonder."--"School Library Journal""This lovely edition boasts the complete original text and illustrations that are also a delight for the eyes."--"Entertainment Weekly" "While a pop-up edition of de Saint-Exupery's enduring tale may initially seem like a gimmick, the resulting volume is a beautiful piece of bookmaking that actually extends the classic story ... this unabridged volume offers a creative, accessible entree to the timeless story."--"Booklist" "The pleasing visual effects are subtle, but add an appropriate sense of magic."--"Publishers Weekly"
