This is a classic book of flying origami models. Most are gliders and don't provide amazing performance, but they are all interesting. It features the best simple paper airplane I have ever found: The Blackboard Bomber. If you have any interest in paper flight, this is a good book to check out.

I love coming back to this book. The seagull is lovely and flies beautifully. I look forward to sharing the designs with my nephew.
