Some very very good models in here -- they look very detailed and lifelike. I think I had some problem following the diagrams, though: I've had that with a few of John Montroll's books. Experience helps, and using good paper. Maybe larger paper, too, as I mentioned in another review: there's quite a lot of folding going on. It has some good pages on explanations of folds and bases, though, so it's not entirely throwing one in at the deep end -- working through the designs in order might help.

I love John Montroll animals. They will come up in 3D, natural but still have a cute side. Try the brontosaurus, my favorite.

One of my favorite origami animal books by far. The models in this book start off from beginner, and quickly advance to high-intermediate.
