If you're an origami fan and know how to fold at least intermediately, this book is awesome. I love folding dragons and there are many in it. The other creatures are cool too though. One of my favorite is the winged wolf. Definitely a buy!

book is ok but I had hoped for better diagrams for some of the folds. I have had trouble completing some projects, but that may be partly my lack of experience with these detailed folds. I'll just keep trying and practicing the dragons. I haven't had much chance to do them at this point in time. I have been doing origami since 2010. Beautiful designs I hope I'll get some completed soon.

This book is great! Definitely for those who have some experience with origami and origami instructions. A few of the steps on various items are lumped together and occasionally difficult to follow. But the final products are beautiful.

I'm a beginner with the art of origami, so this instruction book is a bit advanced for me. The insructions are detailed amd once I am better at origami I look forward to making everything from this book.

Not for the faint of heart. This is definitely not a beginner book. All the dragons and creatures are quite challenging. I adore the winged unicorn! I've only done 2 dragons so far, the winged unicorn and the wizard, and a sword. I love this book!!!

I adore this magical origami book! Diagrams are wonderfully clear. I'm using this book for my advanced origami kids for my summer teaching session starting Monday.

Book is good a bit complex, recommend starting off with a lower level if you are just starting this hobby. If you are advanced you should have no problem. I can't say that in my case.

Great book but I'm having a lot of trouble on step 33 of the winged unicorn. There's just so much going on it that one step. If someone who has done this could give me some tips it would be greatly appreciated.
