This is the perennial bestseller - one of the world's best-loved picture books - in an exquisite brand-new pop-up edition. With sales of over 23 million copies, "Guess How Much I Love You" tells the story of a game Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare play as they try to express their love for each other. But as each tries to outdo the other, they discover that love is not an easy thing to measure! This gorgeous new pop-up edition is one that children will ask for time and again. Unbelievably, this classic bestseller has just become even more irresistible than ever. This is the perfect way to share your affection with loved ones of any age. It presents Big and Little Nutbrown Hare - and their idyllic rural world - in three dimensions.
Little Nutbrown Hare wants very much to impress Big Nutbrown Hare with the enormous scale of his devotion, but ends up being the one who's impressed. Subtitled "a pop-up edition," this sturdy square edition of Sam McBratney's ever-popular Guess How Much I Love You is probably better described as a "slide-along edition." Some pages do include pop-ups, but they aren't the best ones; instead, most involve pull-tabs which animate the two rabbits and their surroundings. One of the most appealing scenes simply shows Little Nutbrown Hare hopping up and down. In a purely technical sense this exercise in interactive cardboard technology is well behind some of the competition, but the tale has a timeless charm and the very simplicity of the movements makes it easy for small fingers to waggle the tabs and take control of the story.
