P is for Pop-Up Book

Pssst… P-Day promises plenty of possibilities. All you puzzled plotters and pantsers, please practise patience yet playfulness with minimal panic, as you pledge to get those poems, paragraphs and pieces polished, then proceed to press publish. Is your Ppost up? No? Get to it. Pronto! Procrastination prohibits progress!

Ever wondered what books would say if they had the chance to express themselves/air their views?

Well, you are about to find out!

All illustrations are by the talented Mary-An. Check out her website HERE

And now you get to play along! What do YOU think the pop-up book wants to tell us? Post it in the comment section below. Have fun!

 At the end of the challenge, between 02nd and 05th of May, I'm going to announce my favourite "book comment" which will be the one that resonates with me the most!

A REMINDER: the IWSG site will have a corresponding post for each letter/day of the A to Z Challenge so do stop by.

On the Facebook page, a thread will be started for the "letter of the day" and we'd LOVE you to share your A to Z post links on the daily thread – this saves YOU time scrolling through links on the master A to Z sign-up list, especially since people post at different times… some MAY skip letters… dead links etc.

One last thing – don't forget to visit those who stop by your blog!

    I love pop-up books. They always say, "Surprise!"

    Pop up books say "Hey, wanna get between my pages 😉 "

    Pop goes the weasel!

    I love pop-up books, even now as an adult, partially because they've gotten a lot cooler over the years.  I saw a Star Wars pop-up book where the entire Death Star popped out at me!

    "If you wiggle me around, I'm animated too." 

    That's a great one.

    With a smirk, it says, "Surprised you, didn't I?"

    Sorry. OD on caffeine this morning.

    Please don't let any toddler fingers near me…I know what happens when they get a hold of me!

    I am positively pleased with your prolific pursuits and proud to ponder and participate in your provoking prompt:

    The pop-up book proclaims, "Peer inside and pore over my pages! But practice prudence and prevent poking your peepers out on my protruding pictures!"

    As an aside, I've made two pop-up books myself (both for grad-school assignments, if you can believe it–thank God I had professors with open minds!) and just adore the creative dimension they add to ideas. ~Rumer Has It

    Okay, someone took mine. Lol! 

    I love these posts. ^_^

    Where's my pop corn?

    What an awesome idea

    The Pop-Up books in our house are shouting. "Please stop the babies from ripping me."

    Every single one is ripped:(

    Not sure what the pop up book would say, but I bet it's excited about whatever it has to say. =D

    "Surprise!" They are the 'jack in the box' of picture books. Kids love them.
