    Frankly put, the best pop-up book I've ever encountered. A truly amazing creation.

    This new pop up book by Sabuda, a master of the form, is very child friendly. While I admired his remakes of the classics like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, those books spoke more to adults than to children. This new book is perfect to share aloud with a child who will enjoy a romp through different fairy tales. A knight starts chasing a dragon through different stories including Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood. Each page opens to a different scene that pops open showing the characters of the story created out of the pages of their book. Entirely clever, quick reading and worthy of revisiting again and again.Sabuda’s art in creating pop up designs will astound young readers. Two pages in particularly are stunning. There is the entire gingerbread house from Hansel and Gretel that pops into being in 3D complete with awnings, windows, door and chimney. Another amazing page is Little Red Riding Hood where the trees pop into a woods that has different dimensions and lots of height. Readers will also enjoy the little reveal at the end as the knight takes off HER helmet.As always, pop up books aren’t really for very small children, but this is one of those that could be shared carefully with preschoolers who will love the detail and the incredible joy of the format. Appropriate for ages 4-9.

    I both like and dislike this book. The pop up illustrations are wonderful, and the little story they tell is cute. However, I looked at this first as a book with elaborate illustrations, and you can not actually read the book. Granted each page is a different popular fairy tale, and you don't need to actually read the text to know the story, but still-my brain sees words and wants to know what they say. The fact that the pop-ups cover so much of the text so you can not read it bothers me. It is saved by the fact that the knight is a girl, with an awesome ponytail.

    Long ago in faraway land, a small but gallant Knight lived in a towering castle, bravely protecting the people below.I had my eyes set on this book for quite a while, so when the price dropped I had to buy it. The Dragon & The Knight is a Pop-up book, with classic fairy tales that have a bit of a twist. The Dragon likes to sneak into the magical fairy tale land and disrupt the pace of the original fairy tale. Right on his heels is the gallant knight who is chasing him. I loved every aspect of this pop-up book. The pop-ups are simply astonishing, even for an adult reader. The Dragon always has some witty remark regarding the fairy tale, so it adds something to the original fairy tales. AND my personal favourite. The Knight is girl. How awesome is that!I know some people didn't like the fact that it's hard to read on some places because of the pop-ups. I actually really liked that. These fairy tales are all well known and I'm sure most parents know them by heart. It's also fun to twist the book around to try the read the words, so that's definitely a fun aspect for children. Overall a really awesome take on the classics and a fun read for children and adults.

    This 'pop-up misadventure', The Dragon & the Knight by Robert Sabuda is charming. It also shows how very talented Robert Sabuda truly is. The art work or as this type of art is called, paper engineering art, demonstrates how excellent Mr Sabuda is in paper engineering. This cute story has this small knight chasing a dragon through the' land of fairy tales' such as Cinderella to Snow White to Little Red Riding Hood and through a few others ending in the story with Puss in Boots. The dragon and the knight actually run through each story, playing their game, and as these characters do this, the reader sees Mr. Sabuda's paper engineered art jump off the page to greet the reader. It is difficult to describe this so please go to the nearest bookstore to view Mr.Sabuda's work and watch the knight and the dragon playing their game in 'land of fairy tales'. It is truly fascinating! Pop-up books have always been a favorite of mine. I hope you will enjoy this one!

    A dragon and knight keep interrupting a collection of Fairy Tales by popping up literally in the middle of the text. My 6 year old was uninterested in this book except for the pop-ups and the surprise ending. Her favorite story/Pop-up by Sabuda is his Winter's Tale which inspired me to find more by him besides his Christmas Alphabet and 12 Days of Christmas. I think we'll keep looking. My 8 year old 's review is a 2 star as there really is no story. If it had been more like David Ezra Stein's Interrupting Chicken, it would have made a perfect gift for a 4-8 year old.

    I'm torn as to how to rate this book. The pop ups are EXTRAORDINARY. I guess the pages are not meant to be read - because you simply can't. The pop ups are on top of the page and text is on the pop ups etc. As someone who has never saw a book by Mr. Saburda before I wasn't sure how the book worked. If I look at is as a work of art I LOVE it ... if you are looking for a fun book to read with the kiddos though... this may not be it. The pop ups are intricate and fun though and my son loved it to look at.

    IT'S SO META! I love books about books. This one is like David Wiesner's "The Three Pigs" on steroids (but in a good way). This is another great work of art by Robert Sabuda. The only con to this book is the fact that it may not last long in the possession of little hands; as is true with all other pop-up books. I'd hate to see it destroyed, but the pages are so intricate and detailed that a rip and a tear are inevitable.

    The ending was the most surprising and gratifying, when the knight's helmet is removed. Otherwise, it would be very fun to take some time with all the detail. - Erin S.Check it out!: http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1...

    Amazing, wonderful, stunning pop ups.I can read most of the text . . . but wish I could read all of it. I know it doesn't matter that much . . . because these are fairy tales, stories we already know, but there it is.

    Not sure who would like this. Pop-ups are amazing, but who knows. I guess the whole point is the Knight revealed to be a girl at the end. I guess other reviewers will probably see things I missed.

    Dragon and Knight chase each other through a collection of favorite fairytales. Their speech bubbles give a one-sentence summary of each tale.The pop up artwork is excellent, especially the use of the pages of text in building 3D images.PreK-2+.

    Another pop up adventure about a dragon getting involved with common fairy tales such as Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Aladdin, Rapunzel, The Three Little Pigs, Puss and Boots, and Dragon and the Knight.

    The pop up is absolutely amazing. It is truly an unbelievable piece of artwork to be celebrated by all ages.

    The paper engineering is, as usual with RS, superb. The book, meanwhile, is somewhat of an enigma as to how it will be perceived by children or shared by parents. Puzzlingly engaging. And puzzling.

    This book is awesome - the pop-ups are really amazing - but I have to hide it until my daughter is bigger.
