...a delightful...hand-size pop-up book on the wonders' of the world. Miami Herald
-- Miami Herald, June 1995
Over the past several years, Chronicle has published a delightful series of hand-size pop-up books on the "wonders" of the world. This volume looks at such legendary spots as Atlantis, the Bermuda Trianle, Shangri-La -- places that "pop up" in conversation, but aren't fully known or understood.
The text whittles away at mysteries that are still subject to surmise more than fact. A surprising amount of information is packed into the prose. The pop-up illustrations are a lot of fun at such a miniature scale.
