Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic keepsake Another Robert Sabuda book to add to your collection. He takes a well known classic and uses clever, detailed pop-ups to illustrate the story. Watch out for the two reindeers that jump out at you. As typical of Sabuda, he saves the best for the last page!
