The Snow Queen, in Pop-Up Form

Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen: A Tale in Seven Stories.
A Pop-Up Adaptation of a Classic Fairy Tale by Yevgeniya Yeretskaya.
Jumping Jack Press (A Division of Up With Paper), 2013.

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...
