Subject: [Puptcrit] Paper


Mary,
I like paper no matter what for design and puppet making. Even have a paper 
puppet workshop!
Shari Lewis's books are great! You will find a very easy design in the one 
called Folding Paper Toys....she called it Freddy Finger....
It is excellent for challenged people because the folding (it "right") is 
not overly critical.
Any book by Michael Grater will (hopefully) inspire you and give you some 
great ideas and tools. Strongly suggest "Make it in Paper"... but as I was 
looking over my collection they are all really good.

Mark

Did John put in a book somewhere? My children have special needs and need
all the help they can get!
