5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Montroll classic 15 April 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
An excellent book. VERY DETAILED STEP BY STEP INSRUCTIONS to create some superb models. Models are givn a star rating of difficulty ranging from Simple to very complex. However, I don't necessary agree with all the catergories and feel that even the very complex models (the spotted giraffe and the Zebra) could be completed without problem by an intermediate folder. Models include a chameleon, a crocodile, an African elephant, a giraffe, and quite a few birds, and plenty more besides. I would definetely recommend this book to anyone.

Some of the designs in this book are mind-blowing! I started with the zebra, thinking I would totally cock it up, but the cleverness comes from Montroll's use of both sides of the paper to make the stripes - unlike any design I have ever seen! The same technique used in the spotted giraffe doesn't work so well in my opinion. The book starts off with simple designs to ease you in, gradually getting harder. There are some excellent original designs including a lion, gazelle, rhinoceros, and my favorite ever elephant design (Hey, I've seen MANY elephant designs and this African one is the best) that make this a 5* book. NO question!

I bought this for a friend, and they have said it is the best origami book around. They are an origami enthusiast and are from South Africa so this book was perfect and rare! The folds are fabulous and fun, any one should have a go!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book for experienced folders 9 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This was my first "intermediate" origami book. I really enjoyed the fact that the models are spread out over several different levels of difficulty. You can start out with the simpler animals and gradually advance to the more complex, ending with the hardest model in the book, a striped Zebra. It took me 4-5 hours to complete the zebra, but I am so proud of it! For anyone who has experience folding, this is a great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Animals, Animals, and More Animals.. 27 Feb 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a great book for experienced folders. This one along with North American Animals makes a great pair. One thing I find missing in most reviews is the contents is so here it is. There are 24 models in African Animals in Origami and they are Grass, Tree, Sacred Ibis, Crowned Crane, Flamingo, Crocodile, Hippopotamus, Snake, Chameleon, Bee-Eater, Hoopoe, Hornbill, Gorilla, Chimpanzee, African Elephant, Ostrich, Vulture, Aardvark, Rhinoceros, Gazelle, Lion, Zebra, Giraffe, and Spotted Giraffe. Happy Folding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Put a Zoo in your house!. 7 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a great book. All the models are clearly explained. And, although some projects seems very complex, the fine and good diagrams, leads you to achieve a great and vivid animal.

5.0 out of 5 stars African Animals, another classic 25 Aug 2003
By Christopher Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For all you John Montroll fans out there, buy this book. For everyone else, buy this book also! It is one of the best books for animals, with a wide variety of difficulty levels. From simple 'grass' to complex striped zebras, this book has it all. I enjoyed making some of the more unique models, like the bee-eater and rhinoceros. Another nice thing about this book in particular is that the models are much different than what are in many other books. Because the theme is Africa, a lot of the animals in this book I have never seen made in another book. (Some however, have been made elsewhere, and quite honestly, better, such as the elephant and gorilla).
The Bottom Line:
If you like Montroll, animals, or semi-complex models, buy this book. If you are a beginner, there may be better choices, likewise, if you are an expert, there isn't a lot to whet your appetite. For everyone else, a great book for your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 11 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is my most favoured book in Origami. I have done all the models from the zebra, giraffe, elephant. All models are par excelance. Montroll is my best folder. I think folders who like folding animals should try Racoon from Inside our Origami book by Montroll.
