A virtuoso in the art of paper engineering for pop-ups, Robert Sabuda applies his mastery to the Nativity story in this book for all ages. In the very first spread, the angel who appears to Mary fairly bursts from the page, and Sabuda foregoes color and drawn details in order to let the clean white forms enact the tale, almost like a puppet play. The Holy Land opens under a gilded sun; the stable animals peer around the corner to witness the birth of Jesus; the angels fly over the shepherds on sweeping white wings; and the wise men follow a glittering star that spins and shines above, more than 10 inches off the page. The final tableau of the adoration can be left open on a table as a crèche.
