Every project in the book can really move! Origami in Action presents 39 actions origami models that are as animated as they are exquisite. Each project is complete with clear step-by-step diagrams, instructions, and a photograph of the finished model.

--Wagging-Tail Doggie
--Boardsailor
--Swimming Manatee
