The Small World of Paper Toys

A beautiful pop-up book, bringing classic toys to life with a touch of nostalgia

The timeless charm of old-style wooden toys in a pop-up on every page. Simple shapes and bright colours bring classic toys to life, such as a red fire truck, baby bassinet, or farmer’s ­tractor. The voice of a young child full of imagination, gives each toy a story. At the end of the day, the child says goodnight to all the toys scattered across the bedroom, promising to pick them up tomorrow.
Gérard Lo Monaco’s talent with paper is used to create an ingenious three dimensional world of toys, presented through endearing little scenes, straight out a creative child’s mind. Lively onomatopoeias add playfulness to every page, making it fun to read this pop-up book aloud while turning its pages.
