Little Mistress Magpie

I found the cutest  pop-up books at a thrift shop, so I wanted to show you one of them today.
"Little Mistress Magpie", designed by L. Mayorova , translated by Tom Botting, and published by the "Malysh" Publishing House in the USSR. I could find no date, but they are definitely not brand-new:
The pages are either simple pop-ups, or they have moving parts.

You'll notice the slight differences before and after I have pulled the tabs on the examples below:

This next one may be my favorite:
Here you barely see the bunny peeking out:
 And  (below), now you do!
Colorful and cute, just the way a fun little children's book should be!

What a wonderful book! Love the pop up illustrations. My daughter is dating a young man from Russia. I wonder if he grew up reading books like this?
