Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Wheatley
The classic art of origami is continued in this next book in the "Origami" series where children and adults alike will have hours of fun learning and mastering this ancient Japanese craft. Alexander includes a description of materials that can be used for the origami projects, a page with detailed photographs that illustrate the basic folds needed and a page diagramming the folding symbols. The moderately difficult projects begin with a fox mask that can be used as a hand puppet. The ornament and masu box and insert are projects that require multiple sheets of paper and patience and time to complete. The water bomb is a fun project that can turn into a die, ornament or ball. The tulip and stem, fancy goldfish, seal and penguin models are included to challenge the reader, but are also stunning projects. "If your model doesn't turn out the way it should, don't worry. Crumple it up and tell your friends you've made a basketball," Alexander so aptly states for the reader. This book includes models that are not for beginners, but readers with a lot of patience who have mastered the basics of origami. Fun facts about origami, table of contents, glossary, index and resource pages including Internet links and books add to the value of this book. Reviewer: Barbara Wheatley
