Pop-Up Factory Related Injuries & Deaths (1975)

"Factory Related Injuries and Deaths" was a children's Pop-Up book published by Scarfolk Books as part of their Local Tragedies series in 1975.

Written by local historian Bill 'thumbless' Chunt, the book was soon withdrawn because the free 'cotton mill and severed fingers' playset contained small parts that some children choked on, and the carboard was sharp enough to cause painful paper cuts.

  1. My personal favorite was The Big Pop-Up Book of Drowning, wherein you received a doll that when placed in a bowl of water would sink at first, then afterwards would grow bigger, become blue and white-tinged, and finally float gently up to the surface for easy retrieval.
