Welcome to the paper galaxy, a cosmic collection of fantastic three-dimensional, modular paper projects. Some are realistic (a meteorite), others fanciful (an alien ship), and they range from very simple to elaborate. Just copy or trace the pattern--the instructions tell you how--and then cut, paste, and paint the paper to construct sun bursts, stars, black holes, moons, comets, even Martians that you can decorate with antennae. And once you've made a few, take a tip on hanging and displaying your handiwork. Budding astronomers and artists will love every one...because they're all out of this world!

Grade 6-10–This colorful collection includes general instructions (tools and supplies, paper for projects, cutting, folding, gluing, and paper choices) and step-by-step detailed directions for 49 projects. The attractive layout combines text with excellent color photography and clear line drawings. The exciting projects include space trivia. Suggestions are given for transferring patterns (photocopier, scanner, templates). Anyone who is intrigued by the galaxy will find dozens of ideas for crafting enjoyment. However, patience, perseverance, and skill are called for in these eye-catching paper delights–a thunderbolt, a trapezium, a sunburst, a meteorite, spiral nebula, a comet, a quasar, Sedna, Pollux, and more.–Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY

Gr. 6-9. Practiced paper crafters scouting for real challenges will find them in abundance here. Prins offers patterns to trace or copy for 49 projects, nearly all of which require attaching spiky, 3-D rays to one of 24 geometric bases with glued tabs. The models are mostly stars, with the occasional spaceship or alien slipped in. Each comes with clear directions (though no specific advice about gluing technique, which in several cases would have been a great help), plus a color photo of a project that has been finished with almost preternatural neatness. Endowed with titles both descriptive ("Asteroid," "Andromeda Galaxy") and fanciful ("Cimmerian Night," "Galactic Chaos"), the constructs are flashy and--given steady hands, patience, and large quantities of glue--doable.
