A creative young boy with a passion for practicing origami finds a surprising source of encouragement on his diverse city block. Joey loves things that fold: maps, beds, accordions, you name it. When a visiting mother of a classmate turns a plain piece of paper into a beautiful origami crane, his eyes pop. Maybe he can learn origami, too. It's going to take practice -- on his homework, the newspaper, the thirty-eight dollars in his mother's purse . . . Enough No more folding But how can Joey become an origami master if he's not allowed to practice? Is there anywhere that he can hone the skill that makes him happy -- and maybe even make a new friend while he's at it?
