Para-Para Flipbooks make great little presents for everyone!
The Para-Para Flipbooks may be wordless, but they have lots to tell: flip through the pages, and chuckle as the pictures spring into motion in stories filled with imaginative visual effects and surprise twists. A hit on Amazon Japan, these artful “animated” shorts by some of the most exciting Japanese picture-book talents of today have sold nearly million copies and are lighting up smiles all over the world.
This ingenious little gem of a book is actually three stories in one. Flip with your thumb on the spots marked 1, 2, and 3, and see a whole new scene unfold each time.
Mohiken, short for “Mou Hitotsu no Kenkyujo” or “The Other Workshop,” is the originator of Seigensha’s best-selling Para-Para Flipbooks series. The name of the group comes from the premise that the members belong to one of Santa’s workshops that keeps on making gifts too offbeat to get his stamp of approval.
