Cute but not really for complete beginners...,
This review is from: Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots, and More (Hardcover)
This is a very cute book that brings a new audience to crochet. The basic pattern for the body and head can easily be adapted to suit any figure you fancy, although you already have lots of choice - the Spartans from 300, Mexican Day of the Dead figures, Cthulu and lots more.
The only problem I have with the book is that, as a complete beginner, I found it a little hard to get started and bought the "Not Your Mamma's Crochet" to explain some of the stitches and abbreviations.
