Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-Knowledgeable craft makers will enjoy this collection of decorations and food ideas. The good news: the projects are not difficult and require commonly available materials. Engaging color photographs and eerie watercolor paintings clearly show the finished objects in appropriately atmospheric settings. Although they are relatively simple, the completed decorations are fun or spooky, and clever. Line drawings and diagrams help illustrate the procedures. The bad news: occasionally the instructions are incomplete or require previous knowledge. For example, there are frequent references to "using a transfer tool," but there is no explanation of what it is or how to use it. In several cases, a reduced-sized pattern is included, but the instructions do not explain that it should be enlarged. Resourceful, experienced handicraft makers will have no trouble figuring out how to get around these flaws, but some children may be stymied. Instructions to use matches and hot glue guns also suggest that this title is best suited for adults.-Darcy Schild, Schwegler Elementary School, Lawrence, KS Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
