SUMMARY- I would have loved this book as a kid - lots of engaging projects that are manageable for a kid. You get good (and colorful!) illustrations for each project, and a great color photo of what the finished project looks like. There's nothing new here for an experienced candlemaker, but plenty for someone just learning.
