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."

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.
