I bought one of these for my niece and loved the damned thing so much I had to get one for myself.

My parents sent this book over for my daughter, and it is easily the most amazing, thoughtfully designed pop up book I have ever seen. The story is the story you know, but the construction and attention to detail is fantastic. I'm only sad that my daughter is a little too young to read the book herself, since she'd probably destroy it. It's fragile, and she's not even two years old yet.

I guarantee she will love this book when she is old enough to appreciate it, and I would recommend it to anyon...more

I am in love with the movie The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and (I read this book awhile ago) when I heard there was a book I was like "I NEED TO READ THIS!" The book was a little different from the movie but still good. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is definatley a classic and I HIGHLY encourage EVERYONE I know to add this book to your good reads and watch the movie too.

I thought I new the story of Oz until I studied the book in college. (Thank you Anne and Phil!) Not only did I discover how incredibely rich the story truly was, I was amazed to find out how much of his own beliefs and world Baum put into this classic. It is definitely worth reading over and over again.

my grandma has this book...i miss her so much and whenever I see this book I think of her :)

After just completing the full novel, I picked this up for my children. imagine my surprise with the incredible 3D visuals. the story is watered down, but true to the original. It allows the reader to read either the short primary narrative or the sub narratives located in small pop out text boxes.

Unfortunately this book is more for adults then kids. It is fragile and requires careful manure ring of each page to maintain the models and restore page dialog boxes. Overall this format brings somet...more

The best part of this book is the green glasses!! :)

Only the coolest pop-up book, ever!

Complex and wonderful.
Notes
Robert Sabuda, ya. Saya termasuk telat tahu tentang Robert Sabuda. Padahal dia maestro gambar sembul. Semua orang yang melihat karya Sabuda pertama kali pasti terpana.

The Wizard of Oz is one of my all time favorite books that I have ever read. I would strongly recommend any student to pick up this amazing story and share it with others. This book not only takes you to an imaginary world and allows you to escape from any problem you may have going on, but it also really takes you through the troubles and accomplishments of a sweet young girl, a scarecrow, a lion, and a tin man. Of course there are several different villains that get in the way, but you also wi...more

I found a wonderful surprise in my mailbox yesterday - a friend had sent me this pop-up book of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I read it last night, and absolutely loved it! It naturally is an abridged version of the story and some parts seemed a bit rushed, so I would recommend it mostly for those who have read the original by L. Frank Baum. I'm not sure if it would be confusing if I did not know the story. But of course the main attraction is the pop-ups, which are intricate and gorgeous! There a...more

I want to classify this book for different grade levels for different reasons. I would say it is acceptable for K-2 because of the pop-ups and the vibrant color. If the story was to be read, a teacher or parent might read to the child or read a long with them, a little bit at a time. I would classify this in an older category because of the passages. Older children love pop-up books too! The book was very interactive. Some of the pop-ups you could play with (the green balloon can be spun). The c...more

The pop ups are very fun to look at and fun to manipulate. This book is not for you if you want the full on Baum Wizard of Oz. It's great as an accessory to the Oz series though.
Robin
faithful to he original story with many fantastic spreads, especially the spinning tornado, the Emerald City, and the floating balloon.
Michael Burhans
This book is unlike anything else I have ever seen. A pop-up book, but that sounds so small compared to what this is, like referring to The Mona Lisa as some paint, or Michelangelo's David as a hunk of rock. This glorious work is told in a shorter version of L. Frank Baum's original text, with artwork in the style of W. W. Denslow(original Oz illustrator). With sparkling touches of colored foil and Emerald City eyeglasses, and complex pop-ups that are beautiful from all dimensions this is a wor...more

So when I went to the bookstore to buy the Star Wars pop-up book, they had a whole section dedicated to these type of books. I looked at Horton Hears a Who, We're Going On A Bear Hunt and lots more all in beautiful, rich detailed pop-up books. They are truly pieces of art. My favorite of the ones that I looked at was this one. The emerald city was quite stunning and the wizard's hot air ballon was surprising and fun. Although in reality I'm not sure how great these books are for kids because mos...more

This is one of the best Robert Sabuda book I've ever read. I loved it so much I purchased it! No matter what your age, you'll love the elaborate pop-ups. The best treat this book offers is a pair of spectacles to view the pop-up version of the Emerald City. There is definitely a "green glow" around the city! Another treat this book holds for its readers are the little books within the big book, which also have pop-ups within them. If you haven't seen the book or read it, take the time because it...more

This pop-up books is one of the most elaborate pieces I've ever owned. It has proven surprisingly durable, despite being filled with strings, wooden bits, and intricately connected foiled paper. The text is cleverly adapted from that of the original book, though some queer excisions are made. I have read this book many times, and still found new things in this vast world of paper- I had never noticed the secret message which wearing the green spectacles reveals! This is clearly not a book, but a...more

Dorothy gets carried away to a strange land in a cyclone and is searching for the great wizard of oz, upon finding him he tells her to kill the wicked witch to get her wish. So she finds the witch and kills her, but does she get home?
I thought this book was ok, the pop ups were amazing, but I tried reading it to my kids and couldn't keep them interested. There was too much story between pictures and even I got bored reading it.
Jen
This is a serious pop-up. I classify it under picture books only because I don't know what else to do with it... the artwork is exquisite. I wouldn't let an actual child touch it too much, though... quite delicate. Also, unlike most pop-up books, the book contains the story with a lot of text. I highly recommend it.
Joyce McCombs
I adore pop up books and this one is so intricate and clever you'll be looking at it for hours. The story is basic and leaves much of the original to your imagination (not a bad thing!)... but the cut outs and pop ups are why I love to look at this book more often than I'm willing to admit!
Shannon
This is one of the most amazing pop-up books I have ever seen! It is loaded with detail and would be an excellent book to share with students of all elementary school ages! It is a teacher read-aloud book and even comes with spectacles to look at a certain page! I love it!
Denesha Allen
This book is good to read over the course of some days because of the length. After reading, I would have the kids to create a play based on the story.I would also have students to write about their favorite parts of the story. Showing the movie in class would also be great.
Daniel Noventa
There's so much more than I remember! Thought it would be an excellent book to read in preparation for Wicked. It's nice knowing a little more about the characters, and the the world. Just, wow. So much more than I imagined. Guess it has been a while.
Miley Smiley
This is a book that goes far and beyond the norms of what pop-up books are like. This is a wonderful book to use for imagery, the images literally just pop off the page in this shorter told beloved version of a classroom classic.

This is work of sheer ingenuity and whimsy--I love pop up books and R.Sabuda is my favorite of them, but this one is my favorite of all of his amazing creations. Alice in Wonderland is good, too, but this one seems the best.

With the ability to hold a crayon came the discovery that I was an artist," says pop-up book master Robert Sabuda. "I spent hours, days and weeks drawing, painting, cutting and gluing. My bedroom was a constant whirlwind of pencil shavings, drippy paint brushes and mounds of paper scraps. My mother's pleas of 'When are you going to CLEAN UP this mess?!' went unanswered." Robert Sabuda says that re...more
