Grade 3 Up A fine successor to Cat's Cradle, Owl's Eyes: a Book of String Games (Morrow, 1984). Gryski continues with the same attractive format and clear directions. She repeats the same valuable information about terminology and basic figures that appeared in the first book. Similarly, she includes a few words about each string figure to set it in a cultural or storytelling context. Most figures are described on just a double-page spread, no small convenience for the beginner, who is tied up, so to speak. A brief final chapter suggests three stories that might be told accompanied by string figures. They are an excellent complement to a similar section of Anne Pellowski's The Story Vine (Macmillan, 1984). These two dozen or so string games take practice, but they will reward any scout troop, class, storyteller or individual who tries them out.
