Praise for Art2-D2's Guide to Folding and Doodling
"Once again, Anglebergerand#8217;s humor, which presents itself in the text through characters from the series, in both human and origami form, connects with middle-grade readers. 'Art2' and the other 'Origami Yoda' books are the ultimate example of the by-a-fan/for-the-fans format, which succeeds if executed properly. This did he.and#8221;
"Excellent activity-book offshoot of Anglebergerand#8217;s bestselling Origami Yoda seriesand#133; The banter and tongue-and-cheek humor of the previous books is present, along with encouragement."
"The presentationand#8217;s offbeat attitude, ingenuity, and wit, many libraries will want to stock this high interest book..."
"Fans (and nonfans, if there are any) of the and#147;Origami Yodaand#8221; series (Abrams) and website will find new opportunities aplenty for foolery in this spinoff compendium of progressively challenging hands-on instructions for drawing, folding, and goofing around with (mostly) Star Wars characters."
and#151;School Library Journal
A book that simply invites kids to enter and play
Whether its The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants or the sisters from Little Women, there is no denying that young girls develop a strong bond as they grow up together. The Doodle Circle is an interactive fill-in journal that is passed around yearbook-style, allowing BFFs to document the tight bond they share by contributing to each others books.
Perfect for slumber parties or after-school hangouts, the colorful prompts encourage girls to work both together and independently to ponder, doodle, and collage. When the book is complete, each girl will have a special memento of friendship as well as words of love and encouragement that will remind her how amazing she is as she goes through this fun-filled (yet decidedly insecure) time of life.
With all the pressure for kids to achieve at whatever they try, here is the perfect antidote-a book that simply invites them to enter and play. Nikalas Catlow has made a start on each of the generous-sized pages-a few beginning strokes of pictures and prompts like a boy looking into a bowl and asking whats in there. Doodlers go off from there on a liberating flight of mindless fancy. There are over 200 pages to complete and create. A book that will be as irresistible to overtaxed adults as it is to kids eager to enjoy its spirit of adventure, imagination, and creativity.
