By Ellen Schwartz
Illustrated by Sima Elizabeth Shefrin
“Elizabeth Shefrin’s cut-paper illustrations – ingenious and most appealing to the eye – are the perfect medium for this exquisitely subtle picture-book, in which origami, the Japanese art of folding paper to make various objects and shapes, is both theme and message.”
