Sheila McGraw is author of Painting and Decorating Furniture, Papier Mâché Today, Gifts Kids Can Make, Dolls Kids Can Make, and Soft Toys to Sew. She is the illustrator of the best-selling children's books Love You Forever, and Lightning Bug Thunder as well as author/illustrator of Pussycats Everywhere.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6-- Step-by-step directions and crisp, full-color photographs combine to present a lucid introduction to papier-mache crafting. Eight projects ranging from animal sculptures to vases and bangle bracelets are fashioned from strips of newspaper or plain newsprint. A ``Basics Box'' (how to get started, materials needed, paste recipe, application, etc.) is repeated for each activity; a final section gives suggestions for painting and decorating the objects. Although other books contain comparable material, the clarity of instruction, range of ideas, and appeal of the format distinguish this title. Children will use it independently, although adults will gain helpful tips as well. --Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Pub. Lib.
