I first brought this book because the cute picture on the front cover caught my eye. However, being one of the first buyers, I didn't know any of the other content or what other people had thought of the book.
I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It is full of a whole range of those lovely photos, and has plenty of lovely patterns, ranging from the Little Teddy Bears to the massive Jackrabbit.
The only negative point I can possibly pick out is that if you didn't know how to crochet, the instructions on this are not particularly clear. However, I don't never understand quite how you can learn the skill from a book and this information is easily sought elsewhere.
If you want to know all the things you can make, the full range is:
Little Teddy Bear (The ones on the front)
Striped Teddy Bear
Big Teddy Bear
Fluffy Animals (In a special wool)
Black and White kittens
Frogs on a holiday
Sheep from Woollen Planet
Cotton Candy Elephants
Pigs in Love
Boy and Girl
You may see from some of the names that the whole book is written in a very friendly, and VERY Japanese way, which is lovely to read. My favourites are the Little Teddy Bear and the Little Duckling. I would recommend this book very strongly for all ages that are able to crochet.
For the beautiful presentation alone I would have to give this 5 stars, and there is so much more to it then that. If you want to see all these superb and very sweet pictures... you'll just have to buy the book!
