These sharks, whales, and fishes may be made of paper, but they look realistic and are fun to play with! In Hawaiian Sea Life Origami: A Beginner’s Step-by-Step Guide, Laurie Ide and her fifth-grade daughter Karley teach you how to make a dolphin, a monk seal, turtles, fishes, lobsters, and more—thirty-six marine animals in all. Designed by Karley and written up by mom, these simple and cute designs are perfect for all ages. What’s more, each animal can be found in our Hawaiian waters, and each is accompanied by its Hawaiian name. In these pages you will find a slithering puhi, a jellyfish with gently curving tentacles, a shy hermit crab, and a segmented slipper lobster. And don’t forget everyone’s favorite nai‘a and honu! Each design is accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions and color photographs that will have you folding up an entire paper ocean in no time.
