The Brothers Leung are a creative family in Toronto, who've just launched a kids' picture book called The Pirate Girl's Treasure, which combines storytelling and origami:
In this spectacularly original picture book, the story mirrors an origami activity: As a pig-tailed pirate girl travels through mountains, valleys, a cave and finally by sea to reach the treasure her grandfather has hidden for her, imaginative illustrations show different incarnations of a single folded sheet of paper within the scenes. Best of all, clear instructions at the end will let readers recreate the story with just a few folds and tears, transforming a piece of notebook paper into a mountain, hat, cave, boat and really cool pirate shirt.
The Leungs are holding a signing and launch tomorrow, Saturday the 14th, at Toronto's Little Island Comics (742 Bathurst St.) 12-3pm.
