Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3 Up-- As in Quick and Easy Paper Toys (1988), Optical Illusion Tricks and Toys (1989), and Instant Paper Airplanes (1988, all Sterling), Churchill gives detailed step-by-step instructions on how to make toys from readily available materials. The writing is straightforward and clear with numerous black-and-white illustrations showing many of the steps and, in most cases, the finished products. Examples are given of the kinds of materials needed; e.g., cardboard of a certain thickness is described as cereal box cardboard or manila file folder. Churchill always encourages readers to come up with their own design ideas to adapt the constructions detailed in the book. Divided into sections according to the activity, the collection includes: toys that sail; noisemakers; balances, tumblers, and jumpers; twirlers and spinners; puppets; toys with wheels; and quick games. A few of the projects have been described in other books, but several of the ideas are both intriguing and ingenious. Instructions for some toys are a bit complicated and may frustrate younger or less patient readers. For the most part, though, this is a good companion to Churchill's earlier books and a useful addition to craft book sections. --Patricia Homer, Lowville Academy, NY
