When it comes to “Harry Potter”, it is a franchise that I can never get enough of. I thought that the idea of a pop-up book would be extremely cool for this series and I was not let down. This book is extremely detailed and should be a must purchase for all fans of “Harry Potter”. Based on the creative development of the films, this book includes amazing original artwork by Andrew Williamson, the concept artist for all eight movies. This is one of the most detailed and impressive 3D pop-up books that I have seen.
The book has five pop ups throughout its twelve pages, inclduing Diagon Alley, Hogwarts Castle, Magical Creatures, Magical Games and the Triwizard Tournament and the Dark Arts. It is not just the pop-ups though on each page,
there are side pop-ups and interactive bonuses as well. It is really amazing how much is packed into this book. Everytime that I pick it up I feel like I find something new. There is still more included with this, such as three pull-out posters for the series.
The quality of the book is really high. Bruce Foster has created such elaborate designs on each page. Normally with pop-up books there are issues with opening and closing each page without folding or creasing. But those are not found here at all, which is very impressive. If you are looking for a different way to enjoy JK Rowling’s stories and relive your Harry Potter memories, look no further. This piece of memorabilia will not disappoint you at all especially since each page is packed with its own magic.
