For the action-oriented reader – and we are voracious readers – there are few things better than a good pop-up book. Boisrobert & Rigaud’s Popville is both enchanting and clever, with a subtle touch of the bittersweet. And it is every bit as engaging for parents as it is for kids. Featuring color-blocked cut-outs that would make Mondrian proud, the book tracks the evolution of cities, from a rural farmhouse to factories and apartments. A fascinating conversation piece, Popville will likely rally as much attention from the coffee table as it will from the bedside table.
