In production now with an expected release end of November 2020, the sequel, or rather, I should say, sister to last year’s The Pop-Up Book of Westerly, RI comes The Pop-Up Book of Stonington, CT. Written again by the tireless and fearless Lisa Konicki and illustrated by the endlessly talented and hardest-working-illustrator-I’ve-ever-known Susan Pfeifer Scala, this book clocks in at nearly twice the size of the previous book. While Westerly focused on that singular renowned and beautiful community, this book encompasses several wonderful communities under the umbrella of Stonington. Included are Pawcatuck, Mystic, Stonington Borough, but also the Olde Mistic Village, The Mystic Aquarium, a history page featuring a grand pop-up of the historic whaling ship, The Morgan, and local events all featuring their own lift-the-flap pops.
The Borough spread even has a working pop-up of the Bascule Bridge. I will post photos soon, so check back when you can. The book, which is a charity fundraiser, is sponsored by the Ocean Community Chamber Foundation. The book can be ordered by phone by calling
401-596-7761. Cover price is $40 plus shipping if outside that community.
