I wanted to bring this book to craft group - the little creatures are too perfect! - but I fear it will be too frustrating! At first I thought I was not doing well - I'm not the most experienced crocheter - but I see others have had so many questions the author has posted a series of tutorials on her site at NeedleNoodles.com.
My verdict: If you are an intermediate crocheter and can adapt patterns on the fly, this is a book for you. Novice crocheters will need to bookmark the author's site to double check their stitches and placements. Prepare to be a little frustrated at times. Having said this, the dolls are really cute and you will love them once they are made. It's worth buying if you simply must have an Amazon warrior or Ninja doll!
