PATTERN RATING: Star Rating. The patterns are full-sized, but don't have the standard 1/4" seam allowance marked on them. They use the old a-b-c method of marking. If you like anthropomorphic animals, this book is likely to appeal to you. Though most of the toys' character are in the clothes they are dressed in, and not the animals themselves.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. Instructions are brief and to the point. If you don't already know what you are doing, you might have a little trouble, as there are no illustrations to help the toy maker. Ms. Anderson assumes some experience is already there.

SUMMARY: This book is only about making the patterns presented, and doesn't attempt to go into the designing aspect of toy-making. Ms. Anderson is clearly an accomplished toy maker.
