OK, I have to gloat! I won this in a GOODREADS giveaway. Awesome color, sturdy stock paper, very easy but detailed origami-esqe instructions. So much fabulous fun in this not as tiny as it looks book. Get one for everyone on your Christmas list. But, don't wait, get one for yourself now... (insert me humming "TOPGUN" theme music here then shouting, "DANGERZONE".... yes, I'm playing with a few of them now; Cats and kids are ducking for cover!)
