Crocheted Wild Animals: A Collection of Wild and Woolly Friends to Make by Vanessa Mooncie is one of the newer additions to the collection of books we have on amigurumi - which is a Japanese technique for crocheting (or knitting) stuffed toys. Besides making adorably cute items that will make people of all ages smile, they are relatively easy enough for a beginner to make. This book is better than your typical instruction book as the animals are more realistic looking than just a circle with some arms and legs attached to it. The frog on the cover is an example of this and a good indicator of what is offered in the book. The instructions are also shown visually with stitch diagrams, which can be helpful even to seasoned crafters.
