Cute & Easy Crochet: Learn to crochet with these 35 adorable projects
by Nicki Trench
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.08

4.0 out of 5 stars Great projects, would love more description, 6 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like this book. As a beginner/intermediate crocheter I would have benefitted from an explanation of the pattern as well as the pattern itself - i.e. you're going to be doing three trebles and then a chain space and then three more trebles to create a square' or something along those lines and then the pattern. It would give me a clearer idea of what the pattern was doing as I worked through it.

Other than that, it's really a great book. The projects in it are divided according to skill level and nearly every page is another cute little project that I look forward to doing. The colours of the yarn used are lovely and I like Nicki Trench's style of writing. It's a great buy and one that I'll be working from for years to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read for working on language, 6 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While I didn't find this book as useful as the first two books in the series, it is still a very interesting analysis of the use of language in a children's picturebook. A lot of the terminology was new to me so I think that I need to go back and read it again and I'll probably get more from it on a second or third reading. This is definitely one to read if you're working on developing language in a children's picturebook, Bine-Stock identifies clever use of language in classic picturebooks and ways to apply this knowledge to your own writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide for practical techniques, 6 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like this series of books by Eve Heidi Bine-Stock. She works through well-known picturebooks and shows how the authors have used different techniques to achieve certain results in their writing. All of her advice is very practical and she gives examples of each thing that she discusses. This is very helpful when working on an idea or working through drafts of a piece of writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic story, 27 May 2013

There's something about this story that stays with you even though I can't put my finger on it. It's a very interesting journey back in time to the contemporary times of the story. The characters are very strong.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good edition, didn't like the story, 27 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Eyes Have It (Paperback)
I thought the story itself was a bit silly and not really what I expected. I bought it for my Dad for his birthday as he is a Sci-Fi fan but it was more like a quirky story, which is fine, just it wasn't what I was looking for.
