John Kennedy has really out done himsef with this book. There is an overwhelming wealth of ideas and techniques included. Not to mention step-by-step detailed instructions and colorful photos to walk you through it. This book would be great for a budding puppeteer, teacher,or anyone interested in arts and crafts. Of all the puppet books I have viewed, this one would be in my top 5 to recommend.
Like most of the people looking up this book, and books like it, I have been a Muppet fan for as long as I can remember. The idea of making puppets has been an interest for almost as long. Now that I have my own children this is as good a time as any and this book is a great place to start.I bought this book, Puppetmania (also by John Kennedy), and the Foam Book and would suggest all of them to beginning (and maybe even seasoned) puppet makers. Between the three books very little information is repeated and all of it is informative.This book, specifically, not only covers hand puppets but some rather fun projects that can be done with the kids, including the spoon frog and the shoebox monster.So, if you are a parent looking for puppet projects to do with the kids, an amateur looking to get started, or a puppet vet looking to for something different then it is well worth checking this book out.
Just got this book and am so happy with it, i practically ran online to write a review. it's exceptionally well-written, and loads of fun to read through. many different options and ideas, fun pictures and excellent instructions. the techniques are entirely professional yet easy to do and understand. love it love it love it!!!!
A lot of simple kind of puppets.Some interesting techniques though. Not really what I was looking for in the area of innovative ideas on how to create puppets for stage. Think I could probably get more ideas from Pintrest.
I bought this book for my husband. He is the local fire Chief in our town. He wanted to make a dragon puppet for fire prevention week to help teach the children about fire. He got many good ideas from this book. The dragon looks great so far!
I havent buildt any of the puppets listed but I've been using the ideas and methods in the book to alter my existing patterns to create some really goofy stuff.Recommended book for anybody starting on puppets or out of ideas for new puppets
This is a great starting place to learn about puppet making.There are good clear instructions. I like the step by step method with great pictures.There are extra ideas for each pattern, such as makeing a "person" and "animal" with the same pattern.I liked the few short tips on how to make the puppet express emotions. I would have liked to have seen a few more of those.There are actual patterns in the back of the book to enlarge which is great.I am giving five stars but there were a couple of negatives for me.Too many "childrens" patterns, made out of shoeboxes, plastic milk jug and the such. But this might be a plus for someone else.All in all it is an excellent book more than worth the money and shipping I paid for it.Good Job John Kennedy!
This is a really colorful and fun puppet book with ideas for unique puppets. The instructions are straightforward , but you need a bit of craft or artistic talent to make the puppets turn out like the pictured examples. Suggested materials are not hard find.
