Aspiring ship captains can fold 18 boats (all on waterproof paper) and float them with The Amazing Book of Paper Boats by Jerry Roberts, illus. by Willy Bullock. After a brief history of boats and assembly tips and techniques, the work begins. Starting with the simple Bark Canoe, boat fans then progress to the Aircraft Carrier and finish with the most complex, the Mississippi Paddle Wheeler. Additional information is given for each boat along with detailed instructions and diagrams. (June)
