You'll find instructions for making over forty different pieces: decorated place mats, drinking cups, bonbon boxes you can use, sailboats, roosters, battleships, Chinese towers, birds that stand upright, frogs that move their legs, airplanes, cradles, Japanese lanterns, sunfish, talking goose heads, and thirty other ingenious, useful and unusual objects.
The authors have taken special pains to anticipate and eliminate typical beginners' difficulties, and the book is particularly helpful in demonstrating how to move easily and surely from simple to complex figures.
