Book Review | Flanimals Pop-up

Title: Flanimals Pop-Up

Author: Ricky Gervais

My Review:

I absolutely LOVE Ricky Gervais, so when I had the opportunity to read and review Flanimals: Pop-up by Ricky Gervais, I thought it would be really cool. To be honest, I didn’t know what a Flanimal was, but I did know that Ricky Gervais is very funny so I thought it would be good for a laugh!

I wasn’t disappointed! The Flanimal characters (some that are scary and others that are quite funny) are all quirky and interesting. I love the little commentaries that appear with the Flanimals – they are the type of thing that kids will love but that will also make their parents laugh!

I found this video which I thought was pretty cool because it shows you how the pop-up book works and have amazing the illustrations are!

My only disappointment was the realization that you have to be gentle when you open the pop-up book for the first time. I opened it too quickly and managed to rip one of the tabs that held up Mernimbler (the large Flanimal that is the pop-up on the first set of pages). I’m hoping a piece of tape will rectify the situation, though, because I want to read this book and share it with my friend’s son!

I think this book will be a hit with parents and children alike! I searched for more information on the Flanimals, as I was intrigued by them, and read that a movie is in the works. I really enjoyed the Flanimals: Pop-up by Ricky Gervais, and I’ll be interested in checking out the movie when it comes out!
