Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Castleforte, who has designed graphics for MTV and Warner Brothers, is also the creator of nicepapertoys.com, a popular social network for “papertoy” artists around the globe, and in this colorful volume, he showcases projects submitted by 25 international masters of the “community-based art form.” Following an opening challenge (“You have 50 monsters to set free from the pages of this book”), notes discuss materials, tools, and techniques (including basic paper folds) before moving into specific directions for constructing creatures. Each section provides straightforward assembly instructions for a wildly imagined creature that is described in a short biographical paragraph, with specific details that add to the fun. Accompanying pop-out templates will pose challenges for circulation, but given the likely popularity of this title, libraries may well find creative solutions in order to make this available to a growing audience of young “papertoy” artists. Grades 4-7. --Gillian Engberg

Kept child entertained for hours. Must have the right glue, self directed, learned to follow directions. Hope there are more books like it.

This book is really quite fun, particularly all the details for each monster that make it unique (and hilarious)! About the only downside that keeps me from marking it as 5 stars is that the paper itself, which thicker than most book paper, isn't exactly what I would call sturdy, so when you assemble the monsters they're still rather delicate. Some glue sticks also don't work well as they don't have enough stickiness, and some of the heavier glues make the paper soggy, but once you do find the right glue, they're absolutely adorable (believe me, these are not scary). :-)
