Of course a castle should pop up

If you haven’t gotten hooked on the magic that is the Sabuda and Reinhart pop-up books, let me just say that they are not books so much as complicated art that you might deign to share with your child. I don’t know of anyone who can pick up one of these books and not be amazed. They are simply stunning.

Now, if you’re wanting to stock your gift closet or you need a filler item to get up to free shipping at Amazon, you’re in luck! Because this Castle: Medieval Days and Knights book is currently 76% off, at just $4.75. Please do note that the recommended ages are 9-12—this is not a toddler pop-up book, but a little treasure for an older child who can be gentle with it.


  1. I love these books. Did you know Robert Sabuda has pop-up-making tutorials on his website? It’s just amazing to watch his creations come to life:


  2. Oh, thank you! What a GREAT deal! I got 1 of these for my castle-crazy 7-yr-old son and 2 for the gift closet. I also found a great book for my hubby for a future gift to bring me up to free shipping! Whoopee! Thank you, Mir! 🙂

  3. Thank you so much, Mir! We already own that book and love it, but I just bought one for the gift closet.

  4. How did you know that I was just waiting for a filler item? That is great!

  5. Thank you, Pretty! I bought one!

  6. The price of the pop-up book has decreased to $4.51, for anyone who bought it yesterday and is interested in getting a few cents back.
