My son has tried using different size papers, experimented with variations on the instructions, and deconstructed the tetrahedron to see what folds it creates on the paper. He has discovered that the dodecahedron has 20 sides - it can be made with 10 tetrahedrons, each showing 2 sides out (I think - I haven't spent nearly as much time as he has on this stuff). He is still an early reader and has been able to do many of the designs just by following the illustrations and ignoring the written instructions.
Hands down, a wonderful book. Highly recommended!
BTW, for those looking for things to do with "simple" models, like the regular polyhedra, they make great jewelry, if folded with small pieces of paper. I plan to make them for my favorite mathematicians. My next step is going to be to figure out how to print pascal's triangle on pieces of paper, so that they can be folded into Pascal's triangle/tetrahedral earrings.
