"Children will delight in constructing this menagerie of clay animals. The book opens with a short section of techniques that describe in detail how to create the three shapes (teardrop, ball, and worm) and textures needed to accomplish these projects. Each skill is simply explained with one or two sentences and some sketched artwork. Projects are presented with illustrations depicting basic directions and photographs of completed project. The cuteness factor here is high, with rounded hedgehogs, kittens, turtles, and more. The projects do not appear to increase in difficulty or to be sorted in a particular way, but they all are accessible to the intended audience. VERDICT: Collections serving young crafters or in need of additional titles on simple clay projects will find this selection useful."
