Paper Monsters is a hands-on collage studio for young children. Budding artists can create seven collages of monsters using cleverly designed paper pockets in the book.
The book has step-by-step instructions which demonstrate how to make the collage but each activity is open to interpretation. Each spread features an inspirational collage illustration of a monster and paper pocket with a window cut out to the same monster shape. Children can tear and paste the decorated papers included in an envelope at the back of the book, along with any scraps of recycled newspapers and magazines.
Oscar Sabini’s artwork is charming and characterful, inspiring young children to be creative and experiment with form and color.
