Editorial Reviews

Palm Beach Post - Lynn Kalber
Good for beginners... all of them are fun to make.
Canadian Materials, Vol. 12, No. 19 - Lorraine Douglas
The book has excellent production values with sharp clear photographs of the projects and good step-by-step diagrams. It will be a very popular item in school and public libraries.
Origami Resource Center
This book has an eclectic mix of paper arts which include kirigami, origami and modular origami. The easy models are quite easy and will appeal to young children; however, the harder models will be beyond their reach. It is a good beginners book for adults or older children.
School Library Journal
Gr 4 Up-Boursin offers directions for 24 models, some of which are original and actually live up to the title's promise. Using standard origami notation (introduced, along with several bases, at the beginning), he presents two-color step diagrams with reasonably lucid captions for an array of animals, toys, and decorations, from a two-piece tuliplike flower, a perky hamster, and a string of paper dolls to a 12-piece geometric ball. Each project is rated for difficulty and includes one or more color photos of the finished work. Many of the models require scissors cuts, which will ruffle origami purists, but paper-folding novices in particular may be drawn to this collection by its unusually clean design and bright, inviting colors.-John Peters, New York Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
