I had seen the cover of this beautiful book Annabel's House by Norman Messenger (Sorry I can not remember were right now) and did a search. I came up with this wonderful site that has pictures from the book. It is a popup dollhouse book. I am in major love with the illustrations. Plus I love dollhouses and anything Edwardian. Enjoy !!!
A magical recreation of an Edwardian home, complete with figures to press out and secret doors to open, that will provide hours of enchanting play for every child.
This is Annabel's house. If you ask she will tell you that she shares it with her brother Tom, some cats and a dog, two tortoises and a parrot, mummy and daddy, Sarah the housemaid, cook and Joseph the gardener plus nanny and her baby sister.
It's Annabel's birthday and mummy has hidden her presents all over the house. There are many places with doors and lids and things to lift and explore in Annabel's house and many doors to open to walk through or see what lays beyond.
There's a story to follow (all visual) or make up your own, lot's of surprises and even a mystery. Who belongs to the legs we can see just disappearing out of sight as we roam through the house? "
