Description
An unusual superhero emerges in this fantasy from two-time Kate Greenaway medalist Michael Foreman. Joey is a poor newspaper boy, but when a gang of bullies steals his money, his bag suddenly flies into the air and the newspapers transform into Origami Girl. Joey is whisked away on a hair-raising chase with his heroic new friend in order to confront the toughs and bust up their racket. Foreman's detailed and kinetic watercolors give plenty of zing to this action tale for readers 3 to 5.

"Origami Girl, a white figure clothed in papers, emerges from his newspaper bag and chases the ruffians away. Carrying Joey on her back, she flies to a riverside building, where they spy the bullies, along with other thugs and rascals. Origami Girl subdues the crooks, then helps Joey deliver the 'big bad boss' to the police before folding herself back into his bag. The next morning's newspaper features Joey's picture on the front page. With elements of a child's daydream, the basic plot may be old, but the artwork is strong and fresh. And in Origami Girl, a lithe figure about Joey's size, Foreman creates an original superhero with just the powers needed to restore justice. From action scenes to bird's-eye views of the city, the dynamic watercolor illustrations serve the story well. Fun for reading aloud."Booklist
