INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are very well broken down, with photos to help guide the crafter through the process - I really don't think you can get better than that.

BONUS MECHANICS RATING:Star Rating Daniel gets a bonus star - he encourages creating your own creatures and points out in a lot of ways how to do so.

SUMMARY- Half the book is Daniel playing with his creatures - posing them for photos and imagining what they'd say. It's fun and engaging and I think helps put the crafter in the right frame of mind for the fearlessness necessary to make sock dolls. Daniel gets a lot of personality into his dolls. I recommend this book.
