A slim book on origami. I almost didn't buy it until I saw an awesome pattern to make a Christmas tree. I tried it out at an adult Scout leader's retreat where it was a big hit, and then with my Scouts and it was one of their favorite projects of all time. The book is worth the credit for that one pattern alone. I thought the rest were so-so (but I had a lot of origami books) others might like them better. The shapes are meant to be embellished after they are folded. Color photo illustrations.
