About the Book

The world over, people have usee string figures to tell stories, pass on legends, and to perform magic—even to carry secret messages. You can make a piece of string come alive, too.
Follow the detailed instructions and stepby-step illustrations to create 30 unique string figures from around the world, like the beautiful yet easy-to-make Japanese Butterfly the three-dimensional Laia Flower and a tricky Rabbit. There's also a Cat's Cradle sequence you can do by yourself. Then, like the ancient storytellers, assemble them as you recount the legend of the reluctant sun, or Maui's quest for fire, or any of the mythical tales they can tell.
There is magic in a piece of string. Learn it with Many Stars & More String Games, a fascinating, fun-filled sequel to the bestselling, ALA Notable Book, Cat's Cradle, Owl's Eyes: A Book of Stnng Games.

Excerpts

People often ask why I like string figures so much. There's a delight in having rabbits, birds, ghosts, and butterflies in my pockets, and knowing that my fingers can create them whenever I feel like it. The figures are often very intricate and beautiful, and the making of the figures and the flow of the finger movements are as satisfying as the end result.
