This book introduces a menagerie of charming paper animals. Each animal is built on simple shapes any child can master in moments and will lead to hours of pleasure and play.

Animal Origami follows the "unit origami" method. You simply make several basic units-the "boat," the "house," the "boot"-then assemble the finished units, like building blocks.

All the popular animals put in an appearance. Such perennial favorites as dogs and penguins are joined by more inventive versions of the elephant, lion, and kangaroo.

As in our long-selling Origami for Parties and Origami for Christmas, high-quality photographs accompany the instructions and suggest ways in which the origami can be used for decoration or play, guaranteeing long-lasting entertainment for children, their parents, and enthusiastic hobbyists.
