To bring back the age of the dinosaurs, all it takes is folding some pieces of paper! Using the ancient and magnificent art of origami, construct an entire prehistoric world of dinos. Mastering the basic folds is so simple that it takes less than 10 pages of instruction to show you how to. Once you've got those down, start having fun. Follow the generously sized, colorful diagrams and see the animals' bodies emerge, including a long-necked, graceful brontosaurus; the squat, low-to-the-ground pelycosaur; and a velociraptor, looking all ready to head out on the hunt. Or, try your hand at the pteranodon, compsognathus, triceratops, tyrannosaurus, stegosaurus, ankylosaurus, and more.

Dinosaurs ramble across the earth again as incredibly folded origami figures. They may be made of paper but your creatures will have a touch of realism that will take you back to prehistoric times. Everyone's favorites are here, including Tyrannosaur and Brontosaur, as well as some really cool creatures, such as the flying Pteranodon. You've never seen origami projects like these!
Grade 5 Up-After opening directions for several folds and starting "bases," Nguyen diagrams 14 original designs for prehistoric creatures, including most of the usual suspects, plus a winged Pteranodon, a seagoing Muraenosaur, and a "Fantasy Dilophosaur" with spreading neck frills. Nearly all are two-piece models, and require not only paper, but also glue and, extensively so in the case of the Stegosaur, scissors work. These dinos have a distinctive look that experienced folders on the hunt for something different will enjoy attempting, but such collections as Yoshihide Momotani's Origami Dinosaurs (Kodansha, 1993; o.p.) or John Montroll's Prehistoric Origami (Dover, 1990; o.p.) offer wider ranges of both figures and difficulty.
