Amigurumi Animals is an interesting book. It doesn't have the greatest amigurumi patterns (my current favorites in that department are Crocheted Softies: 18 Adorable Animals from Around the World and Amigurumi!: Super Happy Crochet Cute).

This book teaches you the basics and confidence to create your own creatures. Most books don't teach you "how to fish" only to use their patterns. I like sausage dog pg.78 the best. Also, she has a great gallery at the end that shows you lots of internet sites that have patterns for amigurumi.
The patterns can be a bit confussing at first, but it is a very inpiring book that encourages you to alter the patterns and make other creations from it. So far I have made a couple of owls, the cat, the tamki and made my own creation: a grey wolf.
I heart heart heart the photographs in this book, and I think it is cool that at its core it wants to help you create your own little guys.

These little critters are addictive. I hope I can eventually work up to this.

This looks good because it teaches you how to make your own patterns.
A great basic tutorial and introduction into Amigurumi crochet.
