The Pirate Girl's Treasure--An Origami Adventure
Written by Peyton Leung. Illustrated by Hilary Leung
In this spectacularly original picture book, the story mirrors an origami activity: As a pig-tailed pirate girl travels through mountains, valleys, a cave and finally by sea to reach the treasure her grandfather has hidden for her, imaginative illustrations show different incarnations of a single folded sheet of paper within the scenes. Best of all, clear instructions at the end will let readers recreate the story with just a few folds and tears, transforming a piece of notebook paper into a mountain, hat, cave, boat and really cool pirate shirt. Grades: Pre-K to 3 Ages: 4 to 8. Hardbound: 32 pp.
