A Christmas Carousel

A Christmas Carousel

Francesca Crespi
Novelty Book
For ages 2 to 6
Chronicle Books, 1999   ISBN: 978-0811826143

This is a beautiful and unique presentation of the Christmas story. The book is made in such a way that it forms a "carousel" with each pop-up double page spread telling one part of the story. In addition the carousel has dozens of little windows to open and examine and it is thus an advent calendar as well. When fully opened and tied back, the book makes a wonderful Christmas decoration which can be turned and read from again and again. This is truly a work of art which will be enjoyed by the entire family for years to come.
