Overall Impression

In Montroll's second book, we can see more of his older trends of "open backed" animal models, and thickish models. Still, I like some of these models better than some of his later ones, because they seem to have more character. There are some good examples of how to get more from a square: toes for a frog, fangs for a walrus.
