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.
