Description
Colorful and dramatic, illustrator Chuck Fischer's take on Genesis evokes the pageantry of the first book of the Bible in vivid art and stunning pop-up displays. Fischer emulates illustration styles from antiquity and the Renaissance, and with the help of paper engineer Bruce Foster, presents such scenes as the Creation, the Garden of Eden, Noah's ark and the Great Flood, and the Tower of Babel, which rises an impressive 20 inches out of the book. The text, for parents to share with youngsters, is presented in booklets opening to the side or in elements of the pop-up itself, and includes biblical verses, retellings, and commentary.

"Inspired by both a vintage copy of The Golden Children's Bible and a trip to Rome, Fischer and his collaborators offer a Garden of Eden scene executed in an artistic style that recalls ancient tile work; a huge Noah's Ark landed atop a mountain; and a Tower of Babel that climbs impressively high, even for a pop-up. The text, more commentary than story, is hidden in inset mini-books and is accompanied by reproductions of biblical masterpieces; those sophisticated elements will be of most interest to adults. The stained glass–like Jacob's Ladder, and the finale, Pharaoh's household from the Joseph story, show how this book becomes more amazing as pages are turned."—Booklist (starred review)
