Format: Paperback
I received a fun little package the other day in the mail. The package itself was innocuous, a simple white bubble envelope. I tore open the package, not really knowing what to expect inside it. When I pulled the book out, I almost dropped it in terror before I realized that the monster on the cover was actually more cute than scary with its numerous eyes and colorful topknot. I had been getting ready to start dinner, but decided that dinner prep could be delayed a few minutes while I sat down and paged through the latest addition to my book collection, Me Make Monster!, a collection of 18 fantastic creature projects compiled by monster maker extraordinaire Jenny Harada. As I looked closer at the book, I was charmed by the monstrous creations contained within. If you have any children or are a child at heart that loves monsters, this book is a must have for your collection.

Inside the book, rather than a Table of Contents, you will find a Catalogue of Monsters. The different monster projects are sewn, knitted, or made from miscellaneous objects (or a combination of those techniques). The first chapter, "Monster Pelt Projects," begins with a cute introduction to the dangers of monsters and includes advice on how to not agitate them (for example, do not play Barry Manilow music) and then jumps right into the construction of a Basic Beastie with five eyes and eight legs. The assembly process of the sewn monsters are clearly illustrated with numerous color photographs showing how to put the various elements together, step-by-step. By their nature, monsters tend to be oddly shaped, so putting them together can be confusing so I was glad to see the steps detailed one by one. All of the sewing patterns are included and simply need to be enlarged before using.

The previous reviewer lays it all out for you, I just wanted to add my five-star rating. I love this book - it is quirky and fun, with excellent step-by-step photos and lots of help. It has a great variety of crafts, and great projects. I'll probably be making more than one of everything in this book, because each project is so cool and inspiring.

The step by step photos and clear instructions make this a great gift for the crafty people in your family! The monster projects are creative and zany, and my kids LOVE the results. These are perfect rainy day projects and we had so much fun trying them.

Argh, I can't start telling you how much I love this book. I love the techniques and tutorials that are shown. The tutorials are easy to follow and I think this book can teach you a lot if you want to make your own plushes and such. I love the pictures, and the layout of the book. The small bio's for each artist are a nice touch, I enjoyed reading them.
The artists work have inspired me to create my own monsters. I've been wanting to create my own dolls, but this books has really caused me to get on it. This is a good book to have in your collection. If not for the tutorials, then for the inspiration it might give you.
