Looking for something different to carve for Christmas? This is it. These fanciful ornaments double as whistles and are sure to delight children and adults alike. They can take a variety of shapes and forms, as you can see in the gallery. In fact, the idea of making carved whistles is not limited to Christmas ornaments. The tone and pitch of the whistles is determined by the size of the hole, so a variety of notes can be achieved by the carver. The toy soldier carved in this book has two holes giving dual tones. Kelley makes carving the whistles simple and fun. Each step is clearly illustrated and explained, using full color photographs. 12 patterns are provided, but once you get the hang of it you will probably be drawing your own. A fun book full of Christmas spirit.
