Turn any time into party time with balloon creations that are more fun, and easier to make, than you'll find in any other book! Simple twist-and-turn techniques show how to loop and tie balloons together to create colorful creatures, large and small, make balloon costumes and hats, and transform any space indoors or out into a magic kingdom. Brilliant color photos show finished projects and close-ups of each step. For starters, turn single balloon into flowers or animals, hats or jewelry. Then try your hand at a stegosaurus, butterfly, dragon, or school of fish. Move on to eye-popping airplanes and space ships, a Halloween spider and web, your choice of a birthday centerpiece, braids and bracelets, and costumes for pirates, angels, fairies, and robots. There's even a section on building your own funhouse or festooning your entryway. Before you know it, you can host your own version of a Macy's Parade!

Levine: Vancouver, BC/Ouchi:N. Vancouver
Gr. 5-8. Levine, author of books such as Awesome YoYo Tricks (2000) and The Magnet Book (1997), teams up with street performer Michael Ouchi to explore the possibilities and the methods of making animals, bracelets, hats, costumes, and even playhouses from balloons. Long, skinny balloons twisted into dachshunds are just the beginning here (difficulty scale: 1 out of 5). More advanced students of the art may want to attempt the dragon, the space ship, or the "three-braid maze with racing balloon balls." Beginning with information about materials, techniques, and safety, the book goes on to explain how to make a wide variety of projects, which are clearly illustrated with step-by-step line drawings as well as colorful photos of the evolving shapes. An appealing and practical guide. Carolyn Phelan
