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.

I'm intrigued by the idea of making small crocheted animals. Unfortunately, none of the patterns in this book appealed to me.
