Robert Sabuda Pop Up Books

Updated on April 17, 2013

Robert Sabuda and his amazing pop up books

Robert Sabuda is a brilliant pop-up book artist. His creations jump off the page and will delight children. Sabuda has developed a huge range of pop-ups books on a range of subjects. Particular favorites include his interpretations of the The Night Before Christmas and Alice in Wonderland. And his Encyclopedia Prehistorica is a wonderful display of dinosaurs, sharks and other beasts. Young girls will be enthralled by his book of Fairies and Magical Creatures.

Sabuda often works with Matthew Reinhart. Their collaborations are spectacular. Every child should have a Robert Sabuda book (or several!) in their collection.

If you want something really special, we've also got a selection of signed Robert Sabuda books. These are very collectible.

Fairytales and Classics

Alice in Wonderland Pop-up

A tour through Sabuda's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Brilliant.

A lovely introduction to the surreal world of Lewis Carroll. This pop up version of Alice's Adventures is beautifully designed and will be loved by young children and their parents too. This is the kind of book you keep hold of into adulthood.

 

Beauty & the Beast: A Pop-up Book of the Classic Fairy Tale

Sabuda has also given Beauty and the Beast the pop up treatment. The artwork in this book is beautiful and very suggestive of stained glass. Definitely a higher standard than your average fairy tale book.

 

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: A Commemorative Pop-up

And don't miss Sabuda's Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I get the feeling he really enjoyed creating this. He only tends to cover subjects that he loves himself and it shows.

 

Encyclopedia Prehistorica

Encyclopedia Prehistorica: The Complete Collection

This is probably our favorite set of Robert Sabuda books, but then we do have two dinosaur mad boys. We have a whole page dedicated the the Encyclopedia Prehistorica.

This is a lovely set. We've had it for a couple of years now and I love it when my boys return to it. We can spend a couple of hours on the rug looking at all the pop ups and reading the facts.
