When my daughter was tiny, I found this one and "Six Brave Explorers" on a bargain table. I know why--they are horribly morbid. But these are the best pop-ups ever!

I have my wonderful boyfriend to thank for pulling this off of his shelf when I was having a bad day and letting me read it to him. It's an adorable little pop-up book with really fun creatures.
I love a good pop-up book, and this is a very fun pop-up book.

This book was a absolute childhood favourite! I loved the short, rhyming story, and the dramatic pop-ups!

I still remember some of the lines:

"When the wild pirates go sailing, they think that life's a lark,
no wild sea creature frightens them, they make lunch of a shark."

If you can get a copy of this, do so, it is a real classic!

This extremely short little book has a fun shape, great pop-ups and a rather surprising ending. My storytime kids loved it!
