Grade 6 Up–This oversize, square-format pop-up book celebrates the great director by devoting a spread apiece to seven of his better-known suspense films. Each opening is dominated by a huge, often abstract montage of stills and iconic images that rises up, enhanced by acetate windows and glimpses of moving heads or other body parts. Each spread also contains a brief, spoiler-ridden plot summary, sometimes with commentary on how a cinematic effect was achieved, and a side flap that highlights Hitchcock's trademark cameo appearance. Plainly designed for the collectors' market but featuring unusually inventive paper engineering and evocative, unsettling visual effects, this 3-D tribute–like Maxim Jakubowski and Ron Van Der Meer's The Great Movies: Live (S & S, 1987)–may entice a new generation to check out these classics of the silver screen.–John Peters, New York Public Library
