SUMMARY- This is this young man's first book. My favorite model is his ghost. It's at the end of the section for advanced folds, so I'm a little nervous to try it. But it's so cool! It has its hands thrown up in the air as though it is yelling "BOO!" And it looks mean enough to enjoy scaring people. He has a fun sense of humor, and his models go in interesting directions. I bought the book on the strength of the model on the cover "Folding Outside the Box," and ended up with several models I am itching to try. I only have one complaint - his snowflake has 8 points, not 6 - so it's not a snowflake. But it IS an interesting model, with 4 long points, and four short ones - a sun, maybe?..
