KIRKUS REVIEW

Step-by-step instruction for turning plasticine and other modeling clay into colorful, cheerful, and whimsical works of art; by the winner of the Ezra Jack Keats Award--who won the award for her picture-book illustrations in this medium, but who uses drawings as well as black-and-white photos here. Three-dimensional zoo animals, food, space monsters, buildings, pictures, plaques, and games are created--with tips on techniques, tools, and possible further explorations. The text is lively and insightful; for those who can't yet read, the black-and-white drawings are abundant and explicit. An unusual book that should provide both the young artist and the art or craft teacher with useful inspiration for work in a popular, accessible medium.
