A Christmas Carol Pop-Up

Thursday, December 2, 2010

One of my all-time favorite Christmas stories is Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol.  The Ghost of Christmas Past, Present, & Future and the adventures they lead Ebenezer Scrooge on, make for the most entertaining story line and the characters become so dear to you once you're engaged in the story.

When I was younger, almost every holiday season, my grandparents would purchase tickets for our family for the live performance of A Christmas Carol at the Alley Theatre in Houston.  The story is even more amazing on stage!

I was pretty thrilled to find this beautiful pop up book of the holiday tale.  I simply can't pass this up.  Both the artist, Chuck Fischer, and Bruce Foster, the paper engineer, created an amazing depiction of the story.

I love the pop-up book! What a classic story. My mother and I saw it on stage for the first time last year. So cool! :)

Thanks for reviewing my new book. I'm thrilled you like it and chose to share it with your friends. Thanks again and check out my website when you can. I've just launched an interactive app for the iPad of A Christmas Carol. It's pretty cool too. www.chuckfischer.com

ps I don't want to sound like I'm bragging, but USA TODAY chose A Christmas Carol Pop-Up for one of the 4 best children's books to give
as gifts this year. It's in today's paper.
