Review: The Night Before Christmas Magical Pop-Up Edition

I've lost count of my book versions of Clement C Moore's iconic Christmas poem - I adore collecting them, and my kids equally enjoy reading through each one.

This latest version featuring paper-cut style imagery and one of the most gorgeous pop-up scenes I've ever seen, has been created by Thai artist Niroot Puttapipat, the grandson of a Lanna-Thai princess.

Puttapipat has indeed created a visually-stunning book featuring silhouette images and cut outs on cream paper, with snippets of striking Christmas red and green.

Each beautiful page is totally frame-worthy, and the final pop-up scenes is so delicate, so intricately created, it will take your breath away.

A priceless Christmas gift for any age.
