Wild and Wonderful Origami was written by Mari and Roshin Ono and was published by CICO Books in September 2011. This book is full of fun origami models that are quick and easy to make. The pieces are rated in difficulty.
One coloured circle means an easy piece, two means medium difficulty and three coloured circles mean a hard to make piece.
When I first picked up the book I was very determined, as the introduction by the two authors was very encouraging. It talked about making the creases and folds very precise, but also about enjoying the hobby and how it takes time to learn to make a professional piece of origami.
The book is split into categories for each type of animal, such as Animal Fun, for animals such as crows and rabbits, Safari animals, the Sea World and the Forest.
The book comes with 50 pieces of origami paper, all already with graphic dedign for each animal.
The book itself has 35 animals to make.
So far, my favourite animal to make in the book is the lobster, as it looks so detailed but it only has a medium level of difficulty.
I would reccomend this book to older children and young teenagers as it requires nimble fingers and a keen eye.
I also think that this book is suitable for older teenagers and adults as origami can be made by anyone if they want to do it.
Thank you for reading my book review, and I hope you have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
