Paper airplanes soar to new heights in Origami Aircraft (April 2015; ISBN: 978-1-62686-172-5; $24.95; 112 pages). Not your everyday paper airplanes, the projects in this kit replicate ten famous planes including the De Havilland Sea Vixen, the Sopwith planes of World War I, and even Lindberg’s 1927 Spirit of St. Louis.

Chess: A game of strategy, intellect, and…paper folding? Add a new element of fun to any game of chess with Origami Chess: Cats vs. Dogs (April 2015; ISBN: 978-1-62686-171-8; $24.95; 112 pages). This kit is all you’ll need to play out one of the world’s greatest rivalries: cats vs. dogs!

The imagery of all the Earth’s creatures uniting in pairs on a single vessel has captivated readers over the millennia, and now that imagery comes to life with Noah’s Ark Origami (April 2015; ISBN: 978-1-62686-170-1; $24.95; 112 pages). The 112-page book is perfect for both Bible students and animal lovers, with easy-to-follow instructions and enough materials to fold Noah, his wife, and ten pairs of animals.

Bird Origami (June 2015; ISBN: 978-1-62686-368-2; $19.95; 80 pages) will have you folding paper like a duck takes to water. You won’t have to wing it when you follow the detailed, illustrated instructions to flush out ten popular species, including mallards, hummingbirds, sparrows, seagulls, and finches. Specially designed paper makes these beauties realistic!

 
Additionally, Thunder Bay’s sister imprint, Silver Dolphin, is launching a brand new series of crafting kits for kids with Pom-Pom Pals: Farm (April 2015; ISBN: 978-1-62686-921-3; $18.95; 48 pages; Ages 7 and up) and Pom-Pom Pals: Pets (ISBN: 978-1-62686-289-0). Each kit contains everything kids need to make four adorable pom-pom animal pals plus instructions and templates for four additional furry friends. Each kit is packed full with everything kids need: over 200 feet of yarn, felt squares, pom-pom balls, 3 pom-pom makers, and ribbon. Adorable extras of pet adoption certificates and a press-out paper carrier to bring pals on the go make this a unique book and craft kit.
