We loved working on Angelina Ballerina. Firstly, the pop-up book was a wonderful opportunity to meet and work with the author and illustrator of the Angelina series—Katharine Holabird and Helen Craig. Secondly, Angelina Ballerina allowed for so much pop-up creativity! Every page has its own exciting pop-up element, building up to the marvellous, musical finale, which can stand upright as a paper model theatre. Our head paper-engineer, Iain, was particularly excited by the pop-up pirouette mechanism he invented for the final page. By pulling a tab, the reader can make Angelina complete two full rotations—quite the paper feat! Bravo, Angelina and bravo, Iain!
Here’s some information from the book’s back cover:
Angelina has been chosen to star in the Royal Show and is very excited, but also very nervous. Join Angelina in the build-up to the show, as she has her final dress rehearsal, puts on her fabulous costume and takes her position on stage. Can Angelina conquer her nerves and give a show stopping performance? This is a sumptuous pop-up book and musical theatre. Perfect for all Angelina Ballerina fans!
