SUMMARY- The book delivers what the title suggests - and the models are still so CUTE. It mystifies me why the publisher would show them so tiny on the cover you can't appreciate them. If you're looking for books that would engage a kid, this one is nifty. The Penguin family was my favorite. If you're a purist, you won't get as much out of this, because the designer was fine with adding details like eyes and beaks and such of cut paper. In traditional circles that is apparently a no-no. I'm of the feral free-range variety of crafter, so the added details just up the charm factor for me without detracting from the idea that this is still origami. Your mileage may, of course, differ.
