Booklist (May 15, 2003 (Vol. 99, No. 18))
K-Gr. 2. Colorful and bright, this story of frustration and determination will appeal to children who have experienced both. Young Kiri likes to do art, so when she receives an origami set, she can hardly wait to start folding the thin, beautiful tissue. But she tears the tissue and is afraid she might ruin more. She works on other art projects, all the while practicing making an origami on regular paper. One day she tries to paint a spring scene, but she makes a mistake that she thinks has ruined her picture. Then she has an idea. Using the origami paper, she creates a flower that she glues to her picture, adds more flowers, and finally gets up the courage to make the butterfly she has been practicing. The cut-and-torn paper collages are just the right medium for this story, and Falwell uses her papers to good effect--sometimes very simply, sometimes in elaborate ways--to capture both the enthusiasm of the child and the enthusiasm apparent in Kiri's art. A final page offers instructions for making an origami butterfly; as with Kiri, it may take children a while to master the project, but they should enjoy practicing.
