Overall Impression

This small booklet packs a lot of models. While most of them are pretty simple, I wouldn't recommend the book as the first origami book for beginners, because they could get confused by some more advanced steps appearing early on.

The models themselves are mostly not too impressive, and for more interesting Christmas designs I'd recommend getting Montroll's Christmas Origami instead; Yet, as the price of this booklet is so low, I'd recommend to buy it, if only for Linda Mihara's delightful Santa, which is worth the price of admission alone!
