Fanciful prose and charming pop-out illustrations of San Francisco’s famous places make this a romantic, witty, and whimsical memento. Sample of Prose Text: “Lombard Street is crookeder Than any road the world has seen, So it has become a place where Tourists feel they must convene. First they climb to test their muscles, Pausing to massage their aches, Then they wait in line to drive it, Testing steering, gears, and brakes.” Rainbo Online Book Review: When you see this tiny pop-up book, it can be instant love. It was for me. Of course, I am a native of San Francisco and I do love my city. The booklet here is just a souvenir and it is tucked into a little cardboard case. When you remove the book and open it up, you get popup pictures of the famous spots in this city. A Golden Gate Bridge pops up and a Cable Car does also. There are more. The booklet is like an accordion and both side of the instrument holds pictures. Buy one and send one. Buy one and save it. It’s a handsome tiny memorial to the City By the Bay. – Richard L. Trethewey and Maggie Ramirez
