About the Author

Matthew Christian Reinhart attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn as an industrial design major (concentrating in toy design). Pratt was fantastic experience for him, but his initial dreams of being a toy designer soon transformed into paper engineer. After working with Robert on books like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, A B C Disney, and Movable Mother Goose. Matthew made his first big break into the pop-up world with The Pop Up Book Of Phobias. Many books collaborations have followed, including a trilogy of New York Times best-selling Encyclopedia Prehistorica and the following series Encyclopedia Mythologica with Robert Sabuda, along with Mommy?, co-authored with the renowned Maurice Sendak and Brava Strega Nona with the ageless Tomie DePaola. His solo pop-up books include The Ark, Animal Popposites, The Jungle Book, Cinderella, The Pop-Up Book of Nursery Rhymes, and STAR WARS: Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy. He continues to work and live in New York City, cutting, taping and folding paper into pop-up masterpieces.



"The first thing we've noticed about this book was the use of complex engineering techniques that make the pop-up's more impressive but also flat and solid. Double layered pop-ups that fold in-and-out smoothly and scene's that unfold from totally flat into a huge decor of paper. A spectacle of paper animation to behold and it's all happening in front of your eyes. . . . Every page is a mix of fantastic artwork, holographic prints and advanced paper engineering. The artwork, also created by Matthew Reinhart, is a pleasant mix of Matthew's typical style of hand painted textures and the almost contrasting digital world of the Frozen movie. It feels and looks like Disney with a crafty edge of Reinhart's style. Something that really works, especially combined with pop-ups."--Best Pop-Up Books
PRAISE FOR DISNEY*PIXAR: A POP-UP CELEBRATION"Matthew Reinhart keeps creating the most wonderful and luxury Disney pop-up titles. We can now add Pixar: A Pop-Up Celebration to the list. With five spreads and four movies represented in every spread, all Pixar movies are covered in this book. At first, you may think, where are all the big pop-ups? But here comes the fun part: the pop-ups hidden behind the side flap covers are so advanced, they all could be used as bigger pop-up designs. But that would make a 20 pages pop-up book. So this clever solution solves the problem and gives room for all movies in one book. . . . We keep saying this about almost every Reinhart book but it's unbelievable that Matthew did all the artwork himself. Imagine how much work it must be to design both the pop-ups and artwork. The typical Reinhart style of watercolor textures and cut-out artwork fits the world of Pixar perfectly!"--Best Pop-Up Books
