What to give the person who has everything?
Frederick Knick-Knack, the Peddler of Dreams, has a dilemma. What to give his most marvelous friend, the Merchant of Marvels, on her birthday? The Merchant of Marvels surely cannot want for much. So Frederick must tempt her with every imaginable delight: elephants as small as specks of sand, an eyelash stolen from the Queen of Sheba, a sliver of the splinter that pricked Sleeping Beauty, the tear liqueur of the King of Crocodiles--but nothing will suffice. Until, at last, Frederick alights upon what he comes to realize is the perfect gift--the gift that is the ultimate expression of his love.
|so imagine where the images are drawn the shapes are actually cut out, and the back side would be items from the book (represented in the suitcase by the circles). not exactly sure how this one would work once it is entirely unfolded.|
|this is not exactly how it will end up. i would like it to have more folds for sure. lots of different flaps to lift and pull and whatnot. paper folding isn't my forte, if you haven't noticed...|
Also, take a look inside the book. It's wonderful.
