    April 1, 2010
    Gr 4-6-In this handsomely packaged volume, Jackson offers 29 elegantly simple toys that he has either invented or modified. The models, arranged in random order and rated from "simple" to "advanced" (though none should be beyond the skills of even novice folders), include percussive "instruments," a wriggling fish, dogs, and other creatures with moving heads or lips, a spinning star, two gliders, and even a catapult. Most of the toys are made from one or two sheets of standard origami paper, and all come with hand photos showing how to hold or move them to best effect. The particularly clear step diagrams use standard origami notation, and the directions that accompany them are just as easy to follow. The thick package of square paper attached to the rear cover won't last long once children (and folders who are children at heart) get their hands on this above-average offering."John Peters, New York Public Library"
