Join a young boy as he creates a world filled with origami creatures of all shapes and sizes out of an array of brightly colored paper.

Award-winning author Kristine O'Connell George's thirty-two spirited poems combine seamlessly with celebrated artist Lauren Stringer's luminous illustrations to create a poetry collection that is truly like no other.
