about

Following his hugely successful Funny Birds, Philippe UG has created a pop-up storybook filled with color, movement, shape, and charm. You don’t have to be an eight-year-old boy to appreciate the plight of a robot caught in the rain—if, that is, the story is told in pop-up images by the brilliant Philippe UG. In his latest book, one of the world’s most imaginative paper artists delivers a delightful glimpse into the inner workings, movement, and emotion of a hapless robot. Once he gets wet, he goes to the doctor and voilà! His creaky gears are fixed, and the robot returns to his happy, finely tuned self. As readers turn the page, each ingeniously constructed spread explodes with brilliant hues, striking contours, and vivid personality. Quirky and inspiring, this book shows why pop-up art appeals to adults and children alike.
