The nine year old - Star Wars enthusiast and budding origami folder -fell on this book when I brought it home. Within half an hour, paper R2-D2s and C3POs were beeping around the kitchen table.
Next General Grevious appeared, and could fight Yoda!
ART2-D2s Guide to Folding and Doodling is great for encouraging kids to have the confidence to draw the things they want to - and to get the results they want. If your child is a stuck on drawing stick figures, Origami Yoda says "Stick figures to the dark side only lead," and shows you easy steps to draw origami Yoda or Vader - and quickly - because no-one likes hanging around! There are games, jokes, and coloured origami paper, special backgrounds for photographing your Star Wars creation. The nine year old agrees saying " I like it because it's very funny, games and things to make and because I like origami, doodling and Star Wars".
You can upload your own creations too, to Tom Angleberger's blog and share your Yoda-like wisdom.
This book is one of a series of Origami Yoda books including Darth Paper Strikes Back, and with a new title arriving in August; The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppet. The review and giveaway copies of ART2-D2's Guide to Folding and Doodling have been kindly provided by publishers Abrams Chronicle Books. Published April 2013.
