Paul Johnson has produced an approach to literacy development that is both astonishingly original and powerfully stimulating. Using simple, easy-to-follow instructions, supported throughout with clear diagrams and examples of children's work, he demonstrates how scores of different book forms can be made from a single sheet of paper. Moreover, all that is required to produce most of the fifty-odd book forms and variations described here in detail are paper, pens, and a pair of scissors.
