Dr. Seuss's well-known and well-loved The Lorax is as timely now as it was when it was first published in 1971--perhaps even more so.nbsp; This bestselling ecological warning is now available in an elaborate pop-up book, published in conjunction with the release of The Lorax feature film on March 2, 2012--Ted Geisel's birthday.
David Carter has transformed Seuss's powerful message and has brought to life the Lorax, the Bar-ba-loots, the Truffula Tree Tufts--and more--in eight dynamic pop-up spreads.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Carter takes this classic story of environmental awareness to new heights, seamlessly integrating Dr. Seuss's verses into his expertly engineered spreads. Turning a wheel makes Humming-Fish splash in a "rippulous" pond, "back in the days when the grass was still green"; flaps reveal mini pop-ups and additional text, while large pop-ups take center stage in each spread. The Lorax bursts out from a stump with a "ga-Zump," framed by an explosive burst of spiky color behind him, and the Thneed factory's pipes release purple plumes of "smogulous smoke," through which the Lorax makes his despondent retreat. Seuss's iconic characters thrive in Carter's capable hands. Ages 3-up. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
