I’m a bit sceptical when I read reviews of new books on blogs. Often someone will rave about how great a book is… so I buy it… and then I’m disappointed. And then I find out the reviewer is a friend of the author. Or they share a publisher. Or they were in rehab together. Whatever. So I take a book review with many grains of salt and then I borrow the book from the library to find out for myself. Here’s one book I haven’t been disappointed with:
These wee cuties – pandas, cats in costumes, dollies, and even a mummy – have all been handcrafted by Year 7’s fairly new to sewing. Totally handstitched as a way of practising their overcasting. Everyone was gaga about the feltie they made which nestles comfortably into the palm of an 11 year old hand. I love this guy’s tummy button.
Here’s a panda gang on the lookout for fresh bamboo.
I love this book and I think it’s well worth the purchase price. And nobody paid me to say so. I’m not friends with the author either.
