Overview

Get ready to look at books in a whole new way! These unique projects consist of far more than paper stitched between cardboard covers. Instead, they showcase a host of fabulous features and magically unfold like a map, contain cards that slip into pockets, include pop-ups perfect for celebrating all types of occasions, and tell stories on a scroll. There's even one that unrolls like a movie. And kids will really enjoy choosing the style that's just right for what they want to say and do--so their message will come through loud and clear. Gwen Diehn, whose work critics have called "remarkably creative and inspiring"* and "outstanding,"** makes crafting easy with her superb explanations of tools and techniques.

"What is wonderful about this title is the author's ability to interest and convince readers that they, too, can become creators....Great ideas for inspiring projects."--School Library Journal
