Sometimes a great story deserves a little showmanship. This pop-up extravaganza by Icinori is a beautifully illustrated folk tale called "Momotaro". The ancient Japanese tale is about a Peach Boy, born of an apricot, who goes on an adventurous quest. With drawings by Mayumi Otero and Raphael Urwiller, this three dimensional pop-up book is sure to please.
