how to train your dragon pop up book
My kids have grown up watching the How to Train Your Dragon trilogy of movies from DreamWorks Animation. The original How to Train Your Dragon film came out when they were preschoolers and both of the twins fell in love with Toothless the Night Fury. The second film arrived as they were preparing to go to Kindergarten. And now the last chapter of the trilogy How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World wrapped up the trilogy as they are getting near the end of elementary school. The Dreamworks Dragons movies really are beloved by our whole family.

So we really enjoyed flipping through the pages of DreamWorks Dragons: Adventures With Dragons: A Pop Up History from Insight Editions. Crafted by James Diaz and Joshua Pruett. Pruett is a Primetime Emmy and Annie Award–nominated TV writer, author, and storyboard artist best known for his work on Mystery Science Theater 3000, Phineas and Ferb, and Disney XD’s Milo Murphy’s Law. James served as the Creative Director for Intervisual, developing over 200 children’s pop-up and novelty books then founded White Heat, Ltd. which published and packaged over 300 children’s novelty books for National Geographic, Random House, Simon & Schuster, Scholastic. This really is a dynamic creative duo that put together this DreamWorks Dragons Pop Up Book.

The book is written from the perspective as if was the journal of one of the films lead characters and primary heroes, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. This personal tone to the text adds an extra dimension of enjoyment complimenting the more than two dozen pop up visual effects within this book. DreamWorks Dragons: Adventures With Dragons: A Pop Up History provides an overview of the adventures that took place within the three How To Train Your Dragon movies through 6 impressive spreads that have the dragons and Vikings pop out at you from the pages of this book.

Relive the enduring story of the friendship and bond that develops between a dragon and Viking in the How To Train Your Dragon movies. Hiccup and Toothless grow into best friends learning to trust and live harmoniously as they grow into leaders. DreamWorks Dragons: The Pop-Up Book explores the Island of Berk and other settings from the films as it shares dragon lore and provides peek inside the lives of the characters from the movies. Full of original artwork and tactile elements brought a lot of joy to my kids as they discovered all the wonderful details included within this book.

If you are a fan of DreamWorks Dragons like my family is, DreamWorks Dragons: Adventures With Dragons: A Pop Up History is a must have addition to your book shelf. Because this book was so much fun to delve into exploring the illustrations and special effects, it has A Geek Daddy nod of approval. We especially enjoyed the paper engineering that lets readers shoot a catapult within the book's pages.

When Hiccup discovers Toothless isn't the only Night Fury, he must seek "The Hidden World", a secret Dragon Utopia before a hired tyrant named Grimmel finds it first. As Hiccup fulfills his dream of creating a peaceful dragon utopia, Toothless' discovery of an untamed, elusive mate draws the Night Fury away. Both this pop up book and the How To Train Your Dragon movies make for great family entertainment.
