THE NUTCRACKER: AN ENCHANTING POP-UP ADAPTATION, by Jessica Southwick. Illustrated by Neiko Ng. Engineered by Yevgeniya Yeretskaya. Copyright Jumping Jack Press.

I’m so very excited to announce that my third book with Jumping Jack Press will be released later this year. Woo-hoo!

This time, I’ve teamed up with illustrator Neiko Ng and paper engineer Yevgeniya Yeretskaya, to create a magical pop-up version of The Nutcracker. Neiko’s charming and rich illustrations, coupled with Yevgeniya’s outrageously-cool pop-ups make this book a real visual feast (and a pretty darned snazzy Christmas gift).

I’ll be posting more info and images as they become available. In the meantime, if you want a sneak peek at the pop-ups, you can check out a page-through of the whole thing, here.
