My Take on the Book
I have never seen an origami book of projects like Stephanie Martyn's book. It has 25 very creative and in my opinion totally new formations to the origami folding art/craft.

When one thinks of origami, you may think about the crane, star, cup, lion, or other easier creations.
Stephanie has created totally 3 D bees, butterflies, cupcakes, crabs, owls, farm animals, zoo animals, flowers, fruits, and more. 

The author's directions are clear and the included photographs are extremely helpful in performing the project. She gives the reader specific directions on the weight of the paper to buy, how to cut the paper, and the basic fold used.
In my opinion even though there are projects that are labeled "easy", they are still challenging. Yes, you can finish a project but they are , to me, more difficult than the 2 dimensional origami I have done in the past.

The only addition the author could have made to this book, would have been to include some precut paper for one of the easy projects. I feel this would be an incentive to use the book right away without locating the paper needed.
