Age range 4 to 8 This adventurous pop-up book for kids whisks you on a whirlwind tour of Tokyo's most famous landmarks!

Tokyo Pop-Up Book cleverly pairs cultural and geographical information with artful paper engineering and an exciting storyline. Follow Chico, a 13-year-old shutterbug, and his mischievous cat Neko as they travel to the world's largest city. It doesn't take long for things to go off course when Neko decides to do some sightseeing on her own! As the pair travels the twists and turns of Tokyo, they pass through unique sites, each with an action pop-up to discover:

Asakusa Temple, an ancient Buddhist temple where their adventure begins The thriving shopping district above Akihabara Station A stadium where a rousing Sumo match is in progress Shinjuku Station, where riders are packed into trains by professional pushers The imposing Tokyo Skytree tower, the tallest structure in Japan, where poor Neko has a dizzying close call The base of iconic Mt. Fuji, where the adventure has its happy conclusion

I was very impressed with the details and the vibrant scenes on each page. Plus, there are so many things to see throughout the book that it really is so much more than a book to read. -In Our Spare Time blog The majority of the pages are edge-to-edge, filled with art, pop-ups, and Neko the Cat. It is fun to keep up with the adventure and sit here looking at the pop-ups to see what is happening in the scene taking place.
