I read the Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King long ago. I remember because my mom spoiled it for me (yea mom I'm talking about you on my blog). She was like... "have you got to this part".... turned out that part was a pretty big deal. I still love you mom! Anyways.. then I kept seeing the Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon as a popup book at Barnes and Nobles but could never look inside because it was wrapped up. Finally I got my hands on it. Here is the goodreads description:
I was able to get a copy of the pop-up edition from my library through their inter-loan system. I was really happy they were able to get it for me. This is a spooky story. One about a girl who has to survive being in the woods alone. If you have ever been in the woods.. and I mean the deep woods you would know that this would be pretty terrifying! The book is one of King's best... it's one where he explores our minds. How would we psychologically be in a situation like this.

As far as the pop-up book I didn't love it. I have seen better. I just thought some of the parts that were part of the pop up was the same. There were two forest scenes and I thought that could've been better (like there could've been a different one figured out). Just seeing one of King's books in pop-up form though is super fun. I think it would be fun to read this for the first time with the pop-up illustrations.

What does the crystal ball say (this is for the popup parts only) the story part gets 5 stars :
Fog is coming..... in the middle of the road on this book!
