Pop up books for a 6yo?

Dd is soon to be 6. She loves pop up books and lift the flap books, but most of them are a bit young for her now. She has the Allan Ahlberg Goldilocks book, and a pop up version of Mog the Forgetful Cat, both of which she loves.

Does anyone have any other suggestions or recommendations please?

Pop up I don't know, maybe Whose Tail is it some versions. And as for lift the flap...
Unlucky Jim comes to mind. There are a few others I've seen in the public library, maybe worth a browse?

Oh, Cats inside this book & sequels too, of course.

How about the Icky Sticky Blood and Snot book - it's brilliant, and definitely not too young for her.

We have a pop up charlie and the chocolate factory. Its a big hit. Has been for two years (oh how I never tire of the same damn story being requested).

Mine are now 10,8 and 3. So were 8, 6 and to young when we first had it.

Any of the Robert Sabuda books - we have Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and one on dinosaurs - all of them are amazing.

Yes the Robert Sabuda books are excellent- amazing craftsmanship and very grown up

We have an amazing pop up " Going on a bear hunt" book that has bits that move. My 9yo DS will allow his younger sisters to have it for supervised bedtime reading but will not let them have it.

Meerkat Mail is lovely and will last a couple of years in terms of content/vocabulary.

We have Dinosaurs and Star Wars by Matthew Reinhart which are awesome!! I think anything by him would be great.

Journey to the Moon is another amazing one. The pop ups are spectacular. The story is OK in my opinion but the book is much loved in my house so perhaps familiarity had bred a slight boredom in my case!

We have a pop-up book of Poo ...

Usborne do an interesting range of non-fiction lift-the-flap books.

Thank you so much for these suggestions. I hadn't found any of these at our local library, and even a search of Amazon didn't bring them up. The Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart ones sound particularly good. Thanks for your help!

There is an author called Neal Layton who has a fantastic series of science based pop-up books which are very much loved by my DCs.
