Most of all, it is visually outstanding. It is full of inventive ideas and will definitely help children develop their creativity. It is enjoyable for my 3 year old; however, I think older kids will find it even more amusing, as the creators manage to utilize many subtle tricks and laws of this unique world to great lengths.

Never have book characters come to life in quite the same way as do pop-up figures Zack and Quack. They literally step right off the page and into the landscape of their pop-up world, where turning a page drops them in a whole new place and pulling a paper tab could reveal a new friend or present them with a difficult challenge. It's that sense of the unknown that will really appeal to preschoolers. What's more, when it comes to solving problems in their paper world, the characters use tools like glue and paper clips to fashion solutions that are within kids' realm of understanding as well.

Cleverly animated to carry the pop-up theme throughout, Zack and Quack also has the potential to ignite your kids' excitement about adventures that await them in books of all kinds. As these characters find new things to do and see with the turn of each page, so you and your kids can experience the joy of literary adventures with new and favorite books.
