Magic Library Children's Classics Jacob's Ladder

This hand-painted wooden toy, crafted to resemble a stack of leather-bound volumes, is a version of the classic folk puzzle named after the biblical ladder to heaven in Jacob's dream.  The toy works by creating an optical illusion that the top book is falling down the stack to the bottom, whereas in fact there is no change in order of the books, they simply reverse position in the stack. Enjoyed by young and old for centuries, this puzzle is great for reflection, inspiration and fun.  Book titles in our Children's Classics Jacob's Ladder are: Mary Poppins by P. L. Travers, The Call of the Wild by Jack London, Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and Black Beauty by Anna Sewell.
