Henri Rousseau Tunnel Book by Joan Sommers
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ages 8 to 12 years. Henri Rousseau's famous 1908 jungle painting Fight Between a Tiger and a Buffalo is presented through the windowed format of this appealing cousin of the pop-up book -- the tunnel book. Following the tradition of the paper peep show, sturdy covers support the two ends of an accordion-pleated paper tube that can be stretched out to provide a three-dimensional view of Rousseau's flora and fauna, including snakes in the trees and tigers ready to pounce, all layered in paper cutouts faithfully reproduced from the painting. A 16-page book providing an introduction to the self-taught French painter and his fantastical canvases is also included.
