The Book Patrol blogged yesterday about a paper bookmobile model that I thought was creative and interesting--something I might forward to my younger nieces and nephew to play around with. The architect behind this clever piece of paper art is Bob Staake.

The next challenge presented itself in short order: Fold and tuck the tabs and glue the whole thing together. Again, easier said than done.
I didn't have the glue, so my "finished" product looks like something headed for the automobile junk yard.
Or road kill.
And here's what it should look like, according to the image below from Staake's Web site:
