"In this engaging adaptation, the story and songs from this Rodgers and Hammerstein musical are found in side panels that can be read like miniature books. Meanwhile, dramatic pop-ups bring the setting to life. In the opener, Maria spins like a ballerina in the Austrian countryside, dwarfed by snowy mountains. Later, she walks down the aisle on her wedding day ('Maria always said that 'girls in white dresses' were among her favorite things, but she never thought she would be one of them!'). Clever engineering creates artful details and visual dimension, giving readers the sense that they've stepped inside the story. Ages 9 — 12. These lushly illustrated hardcover gift books are meant to be cherished for years to come." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
