Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Origami takes a grave turn in a fun and ghoulish spiralbound craft book that explains how to make 13 spooky characters from paper. Using basic folding techniques, which are visually displayed in step-by-step instructions, readers can create elaborate figures like a rising corpse, “Suzie Gravemaker,” a cross-shaped gravestone, and the headless “Abominable Deadman.” Fifty sheets of patterned origami paper are included in a back pouch. However, due to the complexity of some of the constructions, origami novices may want to start with ordinary paper before moving on to the good stuff. Ages 8–up. (Aug.)
School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Featuring both a detachable photo gallery of folded ghouls placed in atmospheric settings and a package of origami paper in suitably ominous colors and patterns, this collection of 13 undead figures may not survive intact for long but offers experienced paper folders hours of creepy fun. Nguyen opens with a tutorial of creases and folding symbology then, giving each of his figures an evocative name like "Suzie Gravemaker" or "Abominable Deadman," goes on to show how each figure is folded with plenty of carefully drawn and clearly labeled step diagrams. Nonetheless, most of these models are challenging projects, made from more than one piece of paper and with hands or fine details that involve finicky folding. Many also involve a dab or two of glue and-particularly in the case of the aptly named "Seymour Guts"-scissors work. The completed models may be more impressionistic than realistic, but their difficulty makes them all the more satisfying to create, and children will have no trouble envisioning rousing zombie attacks and other graveyard horrors with them. "Fold at your own risk," the author warns. "Possible side-effects of Zombigami include drooling, stiff joints, thirst for blood, hunger for brains, loss of speech, and unexpected loss of limbs." Take heed!—John Peters, formerly at New York Public Library
