Oh man, that is awesome. Where do you find all these great foreign titles? I am so jealous.

This book is wonderful. Sigh. A long time ago I used to collect pop-up books. Always thought they were phenomenal art. Thanks for posting. How did you ever get it?

That tortoise on his little scooter is just adorable!

OMG. This is so beautiful! The zebra page totally rocks!

I found it a local sale. It was mixed in with a bunch of old academic books.
I almost flipped when I saw the cover..and the colors so cool.

I’m all about the Kangaroo with the yellow glob on his back.
