PATTERN RATING:Star Rating There is a wide variety, they look like what they're said to be, and the photography lets you see the project in pretty good detail despite the artistic license taken.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Patterns are well broken down and easy to read. There is some illustration to help the crafter along.

SUMMARY- When I saw my first toy book of vegetables, I was perplexed. I wondered out loud why anyone would want to knit just fruit and vegetables - my husband's reply "Maybe vegetarian children need toys too." I still laugh when I remember that. It startled me and changed my worldview just a bit. Well, of course, vegetarian children need toys too - that doesn't mean they wouldn't appreciate a plush teddy or doll with all the accessories. But I see no reason why anyone wouldn't also enjoy seeing a pizza box on the coffee table that happens to hold a crocheted pepperoni with olives and extra cheese - or wish to feed said pizza to their plush teddy. There are some really fun and creative patterns in this book. If your thing is yarn and all its fiendish possibilities, this is a fun book with small projects to use up the leftover yarns from other projects. I was entertained, and now have an amusing story to tell other crafters when we get together.
