Format: Paperback
My eight-year-old son and ten-year-old daughter have checked this book out from the library numerous times. The folds are challenging, requiring repeated attempts and a copious supply of paper (for practice), but the completed models are outstandingly realistic and satisfying.
The authors have provided a lengthy discussion of special papers and wet-folding techniques, but every model can be worked in plain-old origami paper. I'd say that if you've memorized the crane, and if you've worked your way through a couple of intermediate-level origami books (e.g., Kasahara, CREATIVE ORIGAMI), then you've got enough origami experience to tackle the folds in this book. All you need is time, patience, fortitude, and a good supply of origami paper for goof-ups.

Made by Robert lang and john montroll, this a great book. Though I have only succeeded in a few pieces like the Sailfish and the blue shark, it is a fun book for expert and intermediate folders.

Lang and Montroll create amazing models here. Unlike 4-leg animals, sea life creatures are hard to fold due to their special symmetries and forms. Both authors develop new skills to solve this problem, and the result is some unbelievable models: a blue crab, a lobster(with 8 legs,two claws, even 2 eyes), a murex, a lionfish. This book is really a classic.

Excellent book, but not for beginners 22 Sept. 2000
By Mary Jo Sminkey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is definitely not a book for beginners, but once you have got your feet wet with some origami, you may want to give it a try. An excellent collaboration between two top US folders, Montroll and Lang, this books starts with some easy models and quickly progresses up to some really tough stuff. My own favorite is the horseshoe crab, the finished product is wonderfully true-to-life on both the top and the underside of the crab. Definitely models in here that you will love to show off after several hours of careful folding.

Excellent for anyone looking for a challenge. 16 Nov. 2000
By Eric Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Origami Sea Life is the origami book I use the most; I come back to it far more often than any of the 30 or so other origami books I own. The models inside it cover such a wonderful range of subjects that when I think of making a little gift for someone, I can always find something appropriate in this book. Montroll and Lang happen to be my two favorite origami authors, for their challenging and interesting models, and they produce some of their best work here. The range and depth of the models in this book is amazing. There are a slew of fish, including ones not often seen (like the scary Blackdevil Angler), a bunch of well-done mollusks, and a few very difficult crustaceans. Every model in the book turns out well, many of them with a nice three-dimensional touch. Few advanced origamians will have real trouble with this book, too. The point is to complete the models, and while there is a great feeling of accomplishment once your Fiddler Crab is done, it's not because you got past horrible diagrams. No, it's because you folded a beautiful sea creature that not many others could. I would highly recommend Origami Sea Life for any advanced folder (or aspiring advanced folder), as it is worth far more than it costs.

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com

This is one of my favorite Origami books ever. If you are thinking about getting it you should. This book will appeal to any body, from beginner to advanced. I love the models in this book. It contains various models of many genera and cover many of the marine phylums such as variety of gastropods, cephalodops, crustaceans, and many fish from Angler Fish to sharks to Sun fish.

Everything for everybody 13 Nov. 2001
By Ville Qvist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is must for all of us origami geeks.
Whether I want to fold, simple or complex, It's here. I haven't fold every model in this book and some I don't like, but there's allways another one to choose. There are many wonderful fishes, mostly by Montroll, many sorts of crabs including blue crab and a cute hermit crab with a shell. Also featuring nautilus shell, murex, spiky sea urchin and a clam that actually opens and closes it's jaws.
Eveything made from a single square !

Awesome book, I quarantee you'll find your own favourite here.
