Do you delight in seeing an ingenious pop-up "pop" but feel utterly daunted at the thought of making one yourself?

The kits eye-popping features include a roaring dragon, a medieval castle, Frankensteins laboratory, and a jungle scene full of animals for you to assemble.
"Here's a pop-up book to rival Kramer's coffee-table book about coffee-table books. First outlining the basic building blocks of pop-up engineering (types of folds, mechanics like noisemakers and spirals), the book then uses the example of a pop-up robot to demonstrate how such components work together. The remaining sections offer four illustrated scenes, into which punch-out pop-up elements can be incorporated. Detailed directions show how to attach a dragon's pop-up head onto its body; erect a medieval castle; insert Frankenstein's monster into the lab; and create a pop-up jungle. Completing the pop-ups will be tricky for younger readers (the difficulty level increases with each project) but the end result should be as gratifying as it is illuminating. Ages 7 — up. (Oct.)"
