Overview

18 "monstrous" origami projects for folders of all experience.

This book presents 18 projects to create monsters of all kinds and sizes. The book opens with an introduction (or review, for experienced folders) of the basic folds.

The brightly colored monsters are shown step by step with folds displayed clearly on the page, complete with directional arrows. Easy-to-follow text instructions offer extra help.

The monsters are:

  • Imp
  • Beaky
  • Proto
  • Fierce
  • Manix
  • Googal
  • Panix
  • Fergal
  • Rubix
  • Trio
  • Taurus
  • Totem
  • Sea Sprite
  • Demon King

The monsters begin with simple folds, and become more complex further into the book. They can also be modified with extra body pieces, or the heads can be mixed and matched, to make no end of creatures. With 18 basic monsters to make, Monstergami is packed with fun activities to occupy active minds and idle fingers.

Kids who are hooked on Tom Angleberger's series can fold a host of monsters to threaten their Origami Yodas. Starting with the easiest-to-fold Imp and progressing through 16 other monsters to the daunting-looking Sky Sprite, Mitchell arranges the book as a progression. Most readers, though, will want to skip right to the three awesomest, those featured on the cover, with their prominent teeth and fangs; the remainder of the monsters are pretty generic and look much alike. Cleverly, however, these monsters use at least two squares of paper each, meaning that their bodies and heads can be mixed and matched to create new creatures. As with most origami books, this one begins with a two-page introduction about folds and the symbols that will be used in the instructions, which are easy to follow even for beginners. Each project features a full-color photo of the finished model followed by numbered steps that are both written and visual. Since many of the models share basic body parts, readers will need to flip back and forth, as directions are not repeated for each separate project. And origami paper is a necessity—the teeth, fangs and eyes only pop with two-sided papers. Those who have caught the origami bug can have some monstrous fun folding and mixing and matching. (Nonfiction. 8-14)
