SUMMARY- Instructions are very nicely broken down for easy reading, you get a clear picture of how each pattern is supposed to turn out(and you can tell what the animal is supposed to be without being told - a pet peeve of mine, especially in generic stuffed toy patterns), and there are good instructions for block tatting at the start of the book for those of us who've never tried this style of tatting before. I liked the first book of Ms. Ess that I bought so much that I immediately went out and found the other two! She appears to publish one about every two years, so hopefully we'll get another in 2012?! I particularly liked the owl, the sheep and the lamb.
