Adventures from the land of pop-ups.

A host of familiar friends pop up in the neighborhood in this novelty book, timed to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the TV show. Elmo serves as a guide, taking readers through spreads that introduce various residents as well as lightly touch on different concepts (such as matching, counting, recycling and opposites). Pull tabs add another dimension to the pop-ups: at the Laundromat, Ernie, Bert and Elmo rock back and forth during a jam session, while Cookie Monster’s arm stirs a bowl in the kitchen. The bright photographic spreads are eye-catching, and the array of interactive activities should keep readers entertained. Ages 3–up. (Oct.)
