Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Johnson has collected string picture games from all over the world for this lively book which includes everything from the cat's cradle and the witch's broom to Jacob's Ladder and the Eiffel Tower. Full-color illustrated instructions. (Consumable)

Synopsis:

Presents step-by-step illustrated instructions for creating such string figures as Cat's Cradle, Cup and Saucer, Eiffel Tower, Jacob's Ladder, and others.

Synopsis:

Kids have been looping string around their fingers to make cool patterns ever since the invention of string and fingers, passing the skill from generation to generation through some mysterious recreational osmosis. In today’s high tech world, though, people have completely forgotten how to make The Cup and Saucer, The Witch’s Broom, and Jacob’s Ladder. Thank goodness for Cat’s Cradle. Since its introduction in 1993, Cat’s Cradle has sold more than 3.9 million copies worldwide. That means we’ve introduced at least 39,000,000 fingers to the joy of string games. We couldn’t be prouder. The four-millionth copy will sell any day now and, to prepare for that happy occasion, we’ve given the book a brand-new cover. Inside, the simple instructions and ultra-clear tech art remain as foolproof as ever. And, of course, the book still comes with a never-ending loop of rainbow-colored string. Some things are just too good to mess with.

Synopsis:

Painstakingly clear instructions for five different string figures, charmingly illustrated. Attached to the book is a tie-dyed string loop — all you need to bring is ten fingers.
