It is dark in the forest – what is lurking at the midnight hour?
Midnight Creatures is the ultimate bedtime story book by Helen Friel. With marvelous pop ups, you and your reader use a torch to shine through the pages to project a huge variety of animals onto the wall behind you. This only works in the dark – you need to be cosy and ready to explore. It might be a fork-marked lemur in the jungle or a giant squid at the bottom of the ocean – they are all their to find. The stories then are yours to tell.
Here is a fantastic video the publishers have made for us:
This is paper engineering on the finest level – a wonderful activity that children will love and remember for a long time to come. We couldn’t wait to have a go – such an unusual and wonderful idea.
