SUMMARY- There are some great models in this book! A quick thumb through at the bookstore was all I needed to know I had to have it. I made a couple of the models and was able to follow the diagrams. If I can fold them, you can fold them. It comes with 70 sheets of colorful Day of the Dead -themed paper, and 20 sheets of designs you can color in yourself. The papers are bound into the book, though, with a perforated line to make it easier to remove them. You'd have to tear up your book to use them.
