PATTERN RATING: Star Rating. Patterns are gridded and need to be enlarged - but there are a lot of them. They have few markings to help the crafter. She gives a wide range of types of dolls to make from different materials.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. Instructions have few illustrations to go with them, and are typically broken down by body part. Color photos of the made up dolls are scattered throughout.

SUMMARY- If your interest is more doll-making than animal toys, you would probably find this book useful for the wide rang of styles and clothing patterns it presents.
