Comment: This book has already been loved by someone else. It MIGHT have some wear and tear on the edges, have some markings in it, or be an ex-library book. Over-all it is still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4 Up-In each of these titles, Boursin, a paper artist, offers more than two dozen models, rather arbitrarily rated for difficulty. With few exceptions, the constructions in Airplanes are all either original or variations on modern designs: winged fliers; display models; and flying objects, such as an eight-piece Frisbee. Instructions for creating a mix of birds, fish, mammals, and insects can be found in Animals. Both books open with instructions for several "base" folds; Boursin uses standard origami notation in his clearly drawn step diagrams, and also provides handsome color photographs of the intended results. Airplanes will please origami novices and veterans alike. Animals is likely to be less successful-not only because some models require delicate scissors work, but also because the dove looks as predatory as the eagle; the hen, the giraffe, and the sheep will require distinctively patterned paper for identifiable results; and, in general, Boursin's animals are so stylized as to be unrecognizable. Furthermore, even some designs rated "beginner" use challenging reverse folds or crimps. While Airplanes will fly out of any library, consider Animals only for deeper subject collections.

Review

Clearly drawn set diagrams, and also provides handsome color photographs of the intended results. (John Peters School Library Journal 2001-12-01)

These books boast beautiful photograph, well written introductions, and topics of interest to all ages. (Beth Karpas VOYA [Voice of Youth Advocates] 2002-04-01)

Fully illustrated with step-by-step color diagrams, easy-to-follow instructions, and a full-size color picture of the final product. (Science News 2001-09-15)

The directions are generally clear and succinct, and stylish color photographs of the completed aircraft can often help. (Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books 2001-12-01)

We borrowed this book from the library, and my 9-year-old son and I have had a blast folding and flying the airplanes. Most of them have taken off with no problems and have proven to be awesome flyers. One or two models have been a bit of a challenge to fold, but we simply started over and tried again!

The instructions in the book are clear and simple -- simple enough for my 9-year-old to fold on his own, as a matter of fact. I recommend practicing the introductory folds in the front of the book in order to prepare yourself for take-off. For paper, we've been recycling old catalogs and magazines and have some very colorful models flying around our house!

We ended up taking this book to a family reunion with us, and all of the kids had a blast folding and flying their airplanes. It was a great way for long lost cousins to spend some time together and get to know each other again!

I'm not sure why you'd buy this book if you didn't want to fold airplanes!

It's a great book, suitable for beginners, containing excellent airplanes to throw at your siblings and colleagues. The diagrams are easy to follow and everybody should be able to them
