SUMMARY- The designer gives you seven basic forms that all the models are based on. She gives detailed instructions for each model, and they're all embellished in some way like the ones on the cover to get across the idea(the Headless Corpse's head is a painted ping pong ball!). I think her designs are fun - I have only one misgiving. She didn't provide a photograph of any of the models, just illustrations. That's usually a sign that the models wouldn't photograph well, and they're glossing over that by providing an idealized illustration. This may not be the case, and kids are less fussy about perfection besides, so it may not matter.
