Great book for paper folders of all ages. great pictures, models and instructions.

instructions and illustrations do not differentiate between mountain and valley folds, which can make a critical difference. Some steps are illustrated w/o explanation, which can be confusing. I do like that projects are labeled for beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Overall, the few projects we tried did not have enough folds to hold together for long.
