Now that the presents have been opened at our house, I must share this beautiful book we gave to my sister. We share a love for Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen" (thanks, Faerie Tale Theatre), and when I found this spectacular book at a lovely shop in Lindsborg, KS, I knew I had to get it. Truth be told, I'd have loved it for myself, but I thought my sister would love it, too.
This book is stunningly beautiful. The complete fairy tale is here, with gorgeous pop-ups and pull-outs.
The same paper engineer and company also published Snowflakes: A Pop-Up Book, which I have seen on many blogs and websites this holiday season.
I'll leave you with this video from Up With Paper. They show off the book much better than I can.
By the way, Big Sis got another version of "The Snow Queen" for Christmas - remember this one? We do love our fairy tales...
