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..."
