An Origami Story Of Pirates, Monsters, Treasure & Magic

Authored by Eric Gibbons

An origami story of Pirates, Monsters, Treasure & Magic

This is an Origami-story. A tale told through a folded piece of paper. Parts of the story are suggested by a growing sequence of simple folded figures. They change from one to another as the story progresses. There is no need to buy expensive Origami paper to fold along; some printer paper or newspaper will work just fine.

This story is one that I have told and embellished over the years to many children as I teach art. What started as a simple gimmick has become a fully developed story. It is magical the way one folded figure becomes another and how it captures the mind's eye. This is NOT your typical children's book filled with drawings for passive reading. This book engages with a story and simple diagrams to fold along with the tale.

The book concludes with follow-up lesson plans for teachers and parents for hours of additional fun and discovery!
