More-igami by Kleber, Dori, author.

More-igami

Joey loves things that fold: maps, bed, accordions, you name it. When a classmate's mother turns a plain piece of paper into a beautiful origami crane, his eyes pop. Maybe he can learn origami, too. But it's going to take practice - on his homework, the newspaper, the thirty-eight dollars in his mother's purse . . Enough! No more folding! How can Joey become an origami master if he can't practice? Happily, he finds a way - and perhaps a chance to make a new friend while he's at it.
