"Easily the most innovative alpabet book of the year, if not the decade... Beyond clever."--The Washington Post

Prepare to be amazed. From the lenticular cover that changes with the angle of your hands all the way to the Z, ABC3D is as much a work of art as it is a pop-up book. Each of the 26 three-dimensional letters move and change before your eyes. C turns into D with a snap. M stands at attention. X becomes Y with a flick of the wrist. And then there's U...Boldly conceived and brilliantly executed with a striking black, red, and white palette, this is a book that readers and art lovers of all ages will treasure for years to come.

ABC3D is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

From its quad-lenticular cover (presenting A, B, C and D, depending on the angle of view) to its 3-dimensional Z, this is one showboat of a pop-up book.

Roaring Brook/Porter , $19.95 (36p) ISBN 978-1-59643-425-7From the lenticular cover to the jazzy use of a red, white and black color scheme, this hand-size French alphabet book is as stylish as a pop-up can be.
