"Cute Crocheted Wild Animals is filled with handy hints and techniques to guide you through the process, but even a beginner can make one with ease. Included is a finishing touch section, so you can get the perfect result. This is a beautiful book and you will want to complete every creation."--Word Press
"Inspirational photography that will make you smile fills the pages of the book, both inspiring you to pick up your hook while at the same time giving you all the visual information you need to complete the projects with the same care and consideration that Emma has designed them with. We immediately fell in love with sleepy Cyril the elephant, which is why we simply had to share him with you inside this issue! It's great to see Emma's collection of authored crocheted books grow with another winning formula, full of her characteristic whimsy and cute designs. This is a great book to settle down with, bust your stash, and lose yourself in the detailed wardrobes and fun designs."--Crochet Now Magazine
